hermit death

Will not having the right sized, shape shells cause hermits to die? I have had a couple to die on me and one was tryin out shells before I noticed his half eaten body today...

I went to the craft store and picked up a bag of shells for 2 bucks, all various sizes, i put them in and they stopped fighting over shells/killing each other for shells. Hope this helps. I beleive the store was Michaels Crafts.
