    If you just got them, then it's not uncommon for them to dig down either to destress or molt because of the bad conditions in the pet store and suddenly the good conditions of your tank. I wouldn't worry, just double-check your humidity and temp. Also, if you're really worried and want to see them, you could lift up the tank and look through the bottom of the tank, most likely you will see them because they mostly dig to the bottom.

    I wouldn't worry that much. My hermies go down all the time and then come back up at night. Even if they aren't coming up, you shouldn't worry. Just give them the proper conditions and they should be okay
