If one of them has been acting sluggish, it may be from PPS, but it is also probably suffering from loneliness. I would get these two crabs together ASAP, and as long as you are not overcrowding and there is enough substrate depth, it is fine to let them molt in the main tank.

Straws are very hard to keep, and I would not keep them in anything less than a 55g. They also need deep sub, IMHO no less than 12. Here is their caresheet: http://hermitcrabassociation.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?f=51&t=92450 A 20 long would be too small for straws, however a 55 could hold around 3 or ...
Sounds a lot like PPS. The best thing you can do for him is to give him plenty of humidity and tempature, as well as healing foods like PB and honey. If he does pull through, he will regenerate his pincher and leg.

@KrustyKrab, pet store heaters are generally overpriced and do not raise the temperature of the tank more than a few degrees. They also cannot be insulated to provide more heat. A usually cheaper and much better option is an U.T.H from beanfarm.com or reptilebasics.com and look at their UTHs. They w...
