In your second photo there is somethings legs or tenticles coming in from the right.Is that a cray fish?I wanít to see pictures of your whole tank,I like the natural look.Sometimes on ebay there is people selling fresh water crabs from florida.They sell freshwater clams too,suppose to be good for filtration.What state are you in?

Are you sure that its a completely underwater hermit crab?
Iíve never heard of them and couldnt find anything online about them, supposedly gills of hermits are too small.

Do these crabs have any above water land to go to?
Because the majority of crabs need air of somesort every now and then atleast.

They are definately cool though =)
