    Recently I got my friend a new hermit crab since she's been wanting one for a while now and she told me that her crab looks sad and lonely. She only has one hermit crab, do you think he needs company? and how do you choose a suitable companion and avoid shell fights?

    Yes. Hermits are "herd" animals that do best in groups of 3 or more.

    Also, theres no way to really avoid a shell fight except having a lot of shells for them to choose from
