I don't know about marine hermit crabs but I'm guessing they're just like land hermit crabs in breeding habits - dang hard to breed and then, the babies won't survive because they have a stage where they are tinytinytiny (plankton-ish) and they need a HUGE amount of water (as in: ocean) to survive. I suppose its possible that marine crabs are different, but I'm guessing - no babies from breeding them.
