    • - Nocturnal - Awake at night, sleep during the day

  • A well-balanced hermit crab diet consists of high-quality commercial hermit crab food. Recommend vegetables (spinach, carrots and romaine lettuce) and noncitrus fruits (mangoes, coconut and papaya) as treats. Nuts, seaweed, brine shrimp and fish flakes can also be offered as treats. Provide carotene and calcium supplements (such as cuttlebone).
