    Welcome to the site!

    Sometimes they tuck themselves in, may not be anything to worry about.

    My hermie that retreated to its shell, died or was killed by one of its smaller tank mate  :crybaby2: . I came home only to find my hermie torn to bits and one of the small one wearing its shell  :crybaby2: , maybe it was sick and already dieing, but whatever the case, he's gone now  :sad5: .
