Hermit crabs serve a very valuable purpose in household aquariums; as scavengers, they enjoy feeding off of algae and organic debris that might otherwise cloud the water or detract from the tank's appearance. However, they do still require a regular source of nutritious food. As they have adapted to their roles as scavengers, the variety of foods hermit crabs can consume is large, ranging from fruits to vegetables to cooked meat (without preservatives). Pre-formulated pellet food is an ideal feeding source, as it provides proper nutritional balance and ease of use. When properly fed and cared for, certain hermit crabs can survive as pets for years, if not decades!
Hermit crabs occupy a unique place in the pantheon of aquarium dwellers. They are among the few crustaceans commonly kept as pets, and as such can often be forgotten or treated as after-thoughts in the aquarium environment. Indeed, most aquarium decorations are tailored specifically for tropical fish, with little thought given to the scavengers living on the bottom. However, giving some consideration to your hermit crabs' needs can also pay large dividends in their increased behavior and natural interaction with the habitat you've built for them.
