I had a hermit crab for a while but I'm not sure he was the same kind as you have. I live near the Atlantic and we just got him at a coastal resort junk shop in a small plastic cage. I bought hermit crab food for him in the pet store. It comes in a can like fish food and it looks kinda like sand if I recall. We gave him a small dish of regular tap water too that he could easily craw in and out of. The hermit crabs outgrow their shells periodically and leave them behind like yours did. You have to find them a slightly larger shell for a new home. We got ours at the local pet store as well.
"Hermie" (original I know) lived with us for like 3 years I think. We'd take him out and let him walk on the sofa while we were watching tv some nights but I don't think he really cared. I didn't know they could live in salt water tanks which is why I am wondering if there are different kinds of hermit crabs. Hope my story helps.
And now back to perpetual lurking.
