OK! Now I'm getting worried..

I posted earlier about my Mysterious Dissapearances.. Today I decided to check out one of the empty hermit shells.. Turns out it wasn't empty at all..it had a dead hermit in it and when i turned it over these little white bugs came crawling out rather fast and dropped off into my tank..What the heck are they? Help please..TIA

The critters were probably pods and such cleaning up the dead carcass, nothing to worry about IMO.

As for the deaths... have you done a water change recently or a big top off?

Ok..Thats a good think that they're pods then..As for a water change.. I did one last weekend. I wonder if I've been feeding enough since there isn't any fish in there.. I noticed my skimmer is barely if any getting skimmate. When the fish were in there i was getting more skimmate out of the skimmer. Now its dwindled little to none..
