    If you can get the octos to eat them any live crab is fine. With larger hermits, I have found I can freeze them and remove them from the shell to hand feed my hatchlings using a pipette (the smaller one don't come out of the shell in one piece, even dead, easily). None of my adult octopuses have paid much attention to them but others have been able to use some form of hermits as food.
