It's been in there almost a week now. It was fine yesterday, fully extended and happy. Think it's cause I did a top off. It sits right in the filter flow so maybe I don't have enough flow in my tank for it.

Softies will shed a layer if 'skin' on occasion. This is normal.

Oh cool. I learn something every day. This hermit crab just keeps on surprising me. He's went from me thinking dead, to thinking he was missing a claw, to he is fine and has both claws. Maybe it's me being an idiot again. Do hermits molt? I'm probably just stupid and neglected they molt as well

They molt!(And cause trouble!!)
The Kenya will open and possibly spread like fire one week and stay closed up the next????
They don't die fast like delicate corals so don't worry to much about him.
IMO he will return to "normal" when it feels like it(not very aquarium like info but...)?

Lol satisfactory answer. Coral has its own behavior. I think it's interesting to learn.

I was about to order some fancy shells for my hermits then I remembered my mom has boxes of shells she has collected from the beach. Will these be okay? Probably yes but it doesn't hurt to ask

Here's my selection from the big box. Most are relatively small but still bigger than what they are currently in.

Edit: ignore the tiny one it fell out of one.

Yes they will be fine. Just clean them up good (if really dirty you can use vinegar) and make sure the chorine (if using tap water) is gone by dipping them in some dechlorinator solution.
