She died this morning and I think it was the new light that caused the leg loss

Is the other guy okay?
You'll need a new one soon, I've heard tales of a crab stop eating after it's friend died.

I think you need to separate them while one is molting, and have a few inches of sand for them to burrow. Just curious, are their shells painted, cause that's not good for them. Sorry about your female.

I know she is dead but here is a note: Do NOT use calcium sand, if you put water on it you can see how it sticks together and hardens. Hermit crabs have been known to become trap in there shells from the calcium sand and have a slow death. For calcium feed them egg shells, shrimp etc.
http://www.hermitcrabparadise.com/cr...ms/bedding.php This is a great forums about hermit crabs, and the people that help make it have kept crabs alive for 10+ years and one crab owned by a lady is 35 years old and still going strong.
