    I have searched for ideas on Oyster and grit feeders. I saw some on here a few months ago but can not find them now.
    If you have some that work please post a picture.

    I just put mine in an extra feeder I had, it's kind of small and hangs out of the way. I do like the tuna can idea, VERY thrifty!!
