They will do that from time to time. Mine do it all the time and I for sure have enough shells in the tank. I think it's quite barbaric how they kill for the shells. I most likely will not be adding any more hermits because of it. I just buy them and they get killed off. :-(

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

Also just a thought... How are you testing your salinity? Are you using a floating arm hydrometer or a refractometer?
