I got him back in the shell i think. Tammy from hermit crab patch gave me some advice. Going to put instant ocean in dish tomorrow and she says that one of his walking legs is the wrong length and that’s why he’s having trouble.

Happy is back up. Hope he’s nice to bashful and doesn’t bother him.

Going to let bashful rest overnight. Hope he’s going to still be in that shell in the morning.

Was in shell (next to him) last night. But, wasn’t acting right. Definitely smell the fish smell badly and he fell out of shell completely.

Rip bashful

Poor Happy is now alone

To make sure I wasn't imagining it I gave Happy a smell (happy wasn't happy about that--shockingly didn't pinch me). Bashful was definitely dead. I thought I smelled little fishy smell yesterday but this smelled just as bad as when my snail Shelli died. Wrapped Bashful up in paper towel and put him in the garage with my 2 bettas that died over the winter.

Contacted PetSmart Yesterday about the source of their fish-meal in their pellet food. Tammy at Hermit Crab Patch was very helpful. She even provided insight into what may of caused Bashful's death. I will be getting a new hermit crab on Tuesday when the PetSmart re-opens for sales of Fish, Reptile and small animals. I will be returning to the store that I bought Hermy (RIP), Bashful (RIP) and Happy from. Happy and Bashful were bought March 15 and the city when into COVID lock down around that time too. So, it possible that some of those crabs could of been there when Happy and Bashful were purchased? Just wondering how I would go about introducing them?

I have the tank set up absolutely amazingly. next time I get on my phone app for hermit crab association ill post a picture.

Anyway, thanks for those that helped with Bashful. But, Tammy at hermit crab patch was definitely very helpful I initially emailed her to thank her for the extra items she included in my first ever order from there. Definitely looking forward to getting a food order in (hopefully, after the COVID-19 pandemic ends. Because that was beyond ridiculous getting the package shipped. The united states postal service gives very vague information--probably was flown out of Miami airport, ended up in Mississauga area was still in Mississauga on the day that it was suppose to arrive (Thursday). Arrived in my city for more possessing then was shockingly shipped out and even with me telling them my preferred delivery location as my front door they put it in the mailbox at the park. Definitely, going to do further re-search on what types of food is allowed into Canada. Assuming that all the food that Hermit Crab Patch and Hermie Kitchen using in their food is human grade ingredients (with some exceptions--obviously worm casting aren't for people to eat). I work for a food delivery company and we only ship food to Canadian provinces and even with that cannot ship any meat based meals to BC. So, assuming that there could be some restrictions on meat based hermit crab food coming into Canada? Just don't want the hold up again of the excessive processing. Thankfully, Hermit Crab Patch packaged up my order very well and had a fragile sticker on it and none of my shells arrived broken. Can't wait till Happy moves into one of them. I have the shells at the back right, behind the hide/ wood from hermit crab patch and moss pit. there is two access points. hopefully, Happy can find them. cause I really have no other place to put them.
