i found one of my three hermit crabs dead this morning. when i went to bed last night i checked on all three of them. they were totally all there playing around! however, i do have to admit, that i did see my original hermit crab, Phoenix, sitting right next to the little sick one when i turned the lights out. and that was somewhat unusual.
so, my brother had this theory that Phoenix was killing the other crabs that i was bringing home to be his friends. i was trying to prove my brother wrong because the two newer ones i got have been alive for a while. but, perhaps Phoenix was just waiting for this little one to be alone and away from his buddy... and then he attacked. i'd bettter go check on the remaining guy, Rocky.
