Where have they gone?

In my tank I have (or should I say had) 2 blue leg hermit crabs,
Yesterday I got 2 blue damselfish, I have noticed today, that I now only have 1 blue leg hermit crab are my fish eating them? I'm worried now for the safety of the other blue hermit and my Halloween crab

Thanks
Fern x

Hello Fern! Do not worry blue damsels are not prone to eating crabs! I have a blue damsel my self and she lives in complete harmony with my 5 blue legged hermits. Your hermit might be hiding under a rock or in some place where he is not visible. The only possibility of it dying is if the other hermit killed him for his shell . So is there any hiding spots in your tank ?

I can see his shell, it's just led on the side of the tank but I can't see him I tried moving him with the net and fed them, but nothing's happened. Thank you for replying

No problem but honestly I do not know what could have happened . Try picking it up and if it smells very bad chances are it died.

Do they need new bigger shells like regular hermits and do you have some?

He isn't in his shell at all. Think I'm going to have to go Monday and get some shells x

It's more likely one killed the other to try out it's shell
