    Sometime between yesterday and today, two of my favorite hermit crabs died. Their names were Hermie and Felix. They were the best friends a girl could ever have! Hermie was the first hermit crab I ever had, and Felix was the second by a day. I miss them so much! I held a funeral for them, and am going to send them off into the ocean in a little box, with a special note that I wrote, in honor of my beautiful and wonderful little hermies.:(

    sorry for your loss
    how long have you had them?
    are our temp/humidity OK?
    Are you using purified water?
    2 in one day is kinda weird so it makes me think something might be going on in your tank.
    Tell us everything and be HONEST so we can help you figure out whats going on in there ;)

    I've had them for about two months. I believe the temperature is usually between 75-80 degrees, and the humidity, I am not sure about, as I was not there at the time they died. Currently, the humidity is about 85-90%. I bought new substrate for my hermit crabs yesterday, as well as a large, new water dish. They are currently in a 30-gallon tank, with Eco Earth, water dishes, and food, and climbing objects.

    your humidity is too high try letting some air flow in.
    I am worried that you may have brought something bad in your tank by not ISO'ing Romeo & Juliet, keep a close eye on them ;)

    I'm so sorry. :( It's so terrible to lose your oldest crabs! I know how it feels. It's such a nice idea to send them off into the ocean. :)

    I'm sorry. Maybe there was something wrong with a food you fed or something. I would completly go over the was you keep them, checking for flaws. At least they died in a very nice home.

    Here it is!

    To the 2 best hermit crabs in the world: Hermie and Felix. Thank you both for giving me the best experience of my lifetime by raising you and loving, and taking care of you. I really appreciate that you let me hold you, and feed, and play with you, and I'm so sorry that you died. I hope you didn't suffer. I'm sorry I wasn't here to say goodbye before you passed away. Thank you both for being the best hermit crab friends a girl could ever have.

    Goodbye,
    I hope you have a good time in Hermie Heaven.:(:(:(
