Spirulina

Post by StarJohn »

Hello fellow crabbers. I have read much about how good spirulina is for Hermies and just bought some powdered. Just wondering how I serve it. Do I just sprinkle some on their food? And should I give it daily or just a few times a week. Thanks in advance

You can sprinkle it onto the food. I offer it at least five times a week, mixed in with other food.

Spirulina can be expensive, so I would recommend putting it onto things you KNOW the crabs will eat like apple, extra virgin coconut oil, peanut butter, raw unfiltered honey, etc.

It's good for humans too! I would sprinkle it on.
