Get more empty shells. you can try that. But it seems like hermits will take what they want. I bought some coral that was on a shell. My little hermit went up and pulled off coral and now wears the shell. Who knew?

You could try to seprate the 2 hermit into different tanks and place empty shells in each of them till both hermits have found a shell they are comfortable in and then you can put them back together.

even with empty shells, sometimes they just want that one. I've lost some nerite snails to my hermits, even though there are empty nerite shells in there.
