:'( i am so sorry! he probably died of PPS...plus walmart doesn't have great conditions and that most likely effected boo. :(

one crab that I got from my friend died suddenly while he was buried... I mean, he hadn't even tried shedding his skin and he was dead. :S

i'm sorry too. hermies, what's PPS? it's always hard losing one that you've grown attached to. sometimes they just become stressed for some reason or another. not a lot is known about hermies and why they pass away. i'm really sorry.

RIP Boo

If I may ask how is your tank setup?
how big?
what substrate?
fresh and salt water?
temp and humidity ranges?
