Update

I was looking at the tank today and sow some sprouts of plant.. I'm guessing macro algae? Also, there are hermit crab legs in the front of my tank.... It doesn't have a shell. Should I be worried? I didn't take it out yet. Should I? I think it died naturally because one of them wasnt moving for a pretty long time. It didn't look alive but I wasn't too worried at the time.
Also, happy thanksgiving to all the people who celebrate it and have a good day to everyone else!

For all of those who have troubles with salt creep removal, a mixture of vinegar and water in a squirt bottle works great. Ive been cleaning my light off with it.

Bad news.. I found another dead hermit crab. The two dead ones are in the same condition. No shell to be found and only legs left. Does anyone have an idea on this? I'm nervous to put any livestock in it until I have a good idea what's happening

Are the other hermits killing them? I have heard of other hermits killing bugger ones to take their shells. Possibly?

I'm not sure.. I don't think there is a shrimp though.. I haven't heard any clicking. Water parameters are perfect also.

You can just put a small amount of flake food to keep the crabs fed.
