About to evict my hermit crabs...

Anyone else ever hassled by their hermits? I'm always picking up frags getting knocked over, and seeing corals closed from being harassed by them. Considering tossing them in my sump which is holding the resident convict gorilla crab and a couple pounds of liverock. Question is, can the hermits thrive with bits of food that end up in the sump from the overflow, in conjunction with algae and critters that grow on live rock?

Probably not, unless they happen to like whatever algae you are using for nutrient export. You may have to add food for them.
