I have been keeping emeralds for a couple years and have noticed that some just dont make it. I have some that are a few months old at most, the rest seem to die off rather quickly. I have good water parameters too, I have just chalked it up to them not being super hardy critters.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

that's you problem right there , there starving to death
a few hermits in a 29 may live now but give your tank time to mature before adding the emeralds that will give you better luck with them
