    Does he smell very strongly of fish??
    Also, are there other crabs in the tank? If so you should ISO him.

    It did smell like bad fish, and we had tried to iso him in a plastic igloo, but he died. I think he's in a better place now.

    Thanks everyone for your tips. I'll end up getting more crabs, but I don't think any of them will replace him.

    I know how hard it is to lose a hermie, but please don't be hard on yourself. I'm sure you did the best you could to take care of him, but things happen. It's a fact of life.

    Was he your first death?
    I could hardly take mine, it was so sad. :(
    I hope your crab meets Crusty in Hermie heaven, where they can eat coconut and take baths in salt water jaccuzees while talking about the best thing they ever climbed on. :)
