Naked hermit crab takes a shell

I was changing the water in my hermit crab tank when I noticed this little guy sitting naked by the water dish. I gently scooped him up and grabbed some shells, then placed them in the empty water dish. After checking things out he decides to reshell.


  1. I have 3 crabs for a year now, today one of the crabs attacked another pulled him out of his shell and took it over. The crab appears to be injured, I isolated it placed him in another shell, he appears slugish and possibly dieing what can I do please help
