Did you provide shells for them to grow into? They'll fight it out if they need a bigger home and find one. Try making sure you have a variety of shell sizes in your tank.

That reminded me... yesterday as I emptied my LR Rubble chamber, I found an old used snail shell. I figured I would throw it in to see what would happen. TEN minutes later, one of my hermits crawled into it and found a new home!! This shell was HUGE for its size!

What I mean is you can get other animals that will perform the same job. I gave up on hermits a long time ago. Snails aren't easily available or cheap locally, so replacing them was very frustrating.
