What do minnows and sand crabs eat?I brought some home from the beach in a bucket to play with for a while. I know you use bread to catch minnows so I put some in the bucket, but will that keep them alive? I think they started dying already.

Well ... In Oregon and Washington, it's illegal to take animals from the beach that way.

Even if it's not illegal where you got them, it's VERY irresponsible to take animals from their native habitat - when you have no clue how to take care of them.

I suggest you either return them, or contact your local college biology department for advice.

Live creatures are not toys to be taken out of their natural habitat only to be victimized for the sole purpose of your entertainment. Take them back to where you got them and release them!  It's not fair to just watch them slowly die .. They will die of suffocation in pail .. Let them go!
