Hey all, I was wondering if anyone here has any experience with horseshoe crabs. If so I was wondering if they will eat copepods, tigger pods, cyclops, or any other easy to obtain micro organisms. I have it eating frozen mysis stuck into the sand bed. Thanks in advance.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170721/b4f20c4725c2ec7f6032edb7dbbedc45.jpg

I will probably do a copepod test with him. I hope it works because it is a pain having to feed him frozen every day.

dont believe they do. they are scavengers that eat meat n dead things in the wild. try to get maybe krill to feed it or other big meaty foots, that way you can just give it to him and be done in 10 seconds.
