    Do you have more crabs? There's a template here that you should fill out. This will give the forum-goers more information to help you.

    If you just got them, they probably had PPS - stress from store to your tank. I think it is safe to say that just about every one of us went through a PPS death. :(

    Do you have any other hermies? If so, it is time to get their tank set correctly. We'll help with any questions you may have.

    There are a lot of online places that will ship to you even in Australia. Look up pet stores online and have them ship the gauges - it'll be a bit more expensive, but it is a necessity with crabs that need humidity in the right ranges to breathe.
