Just curious. Assuming I will have a mature Bimac. Feeding him hermits, maybe some snails but mainly shrimp. How much of this will he eat a day?

Gimpy was eating a 2" crab a day. Now my others used to eat a large 3-4" crab every other day. Gimpy is now off her feed as she apparently is making a den and I wouldn't be surprised if there aren't fertile eggs as she was wild caught.

Thank you!

When I store these crabs in a feeding fish holding tank. Is there anything I should know about?

I know from breeding clownfish, that what the food eats also affects what your feeding it to. Is there any type of enviroment I should set up for fiddler crabs to keep them healthy and plump, what should I feed the food lol. And waht size of tank do I need, can I pretty much stack these guys ontop of eachother without them killing eachother?
