Hi guys , I know some people feed small bits of shrimp etc to hammers and other corals ,
Was wondering if feeding small bits of cut up crab sticks would be ok , think their mainly shrimp anyway not 100% crab .
I presume the fish and the hermits would eat it as well.
Just curious before I do it . Don’t want to cause problems in the tank , just got over the last problem with a few water changes .

Personally would be slightly wary of using crab/ seafood sticks as I would think there are other additives beyond the fish (eg. colouring to get the bright pink top)?

I've never fed hammers, have tried but never had a response so don't bother and they are doing fine brought as a frag 6-7years ago and is a large colony now which has been fragged several times
