How do hermits breed? and has it happened in aquaria?

I don't know whats going on, but I have about 5 or 6 little hermits [ Don't exactly know what they are, they are very small and look like they have black legs ]

5 or 6 of them are all huddled together under neath a rock outcropping, acting very strange.

So I was just curious as if it was something like breeding behavior or something, cause quite frankly... Unless their all sharing a bit of food, they never come this close together [ theres no food where they are now. ]

I noticed after placing new shells into my tank that I had a few pregnant hermits. Their "soft" parts that they keep inside the shell were covered with tiny red eggs. It's now many months later and I have no baby hermits (okay, so if I do then they are WAY tiny and haven't emerged at all!). The eggs prolly became food for the rest of the tank.

Marlin: Okay, a mollusk walks up to this sea cucumber, well he doesn't actually walk, he's just there, and he turns to the sea cucumber, and... Well, wait, there's a mollusk and a sea cucumber and...
Chum: You know for a clown fish, he's not that funny.

How do you tell if a hermit is pregnant? Are the eggs visible?
