I have a 55 gal tank
3 damsels
4 snails
4 (make it 3) hermit crab.

Today I found just the legs and claws of one of my hermit crabs. Is there something I am doing wrong? Could they not be getting enough food?
Should I add some extra hermit shells into the tank? Could he have died of natural causes (probably not as I did not find his shell)? This is a pretty new tank, I've had stuff in there for a little less than a month. Please Help?

It is most likely a molt if you did not find a shell :) the legs look quite alive when they shed there skin
