The other hermits might be trying to steal his shell. You can try getting some empty snail shells of various sizes from you LFS. I have several in my 37 gal and have no issues. Sometimes the hermits will battle eachother for a minute or 2 then they get over it. My favorite is when a hermit gets close to my pistol shrimp and the shrimp bulldozes his *** away. Funny stuff right there
