The snails are swarming the Halloween Hermit Crab

I’ve just looked into my dark tank (the lights are off) and there are three snails swarming on the Halloween Hermit Crab’s shell.

I just noticed that the Halloween Hermit Crab had gone into hiding earlier. I am under the impression that this hermit crab is molting at the moment. I figure if the hermit crab is molting, the snail probably can’t get to it because of it’s shell.

Killer Snails

Could the snails possibly have gotten the Blue Knuckle Hermit Crab? I hope not. But they may have. This is some interesting behavior within my tank right now.

All this stuff just creates more questions about the happenings inside my tank. I don’t get any answers. It’s kinda like watching Lost.
