Could I add crabs now?

I have a 75gal FOSW and I started the cycle about 2weeks ago.
I have 50lbs of LR and 80lbs LS and 4 damsels. Could I added some hermits?

Make sure they aren't the regular type hermits that you see at the beach. The big ones I mean. That was my first newbie mistake. I lost a coral beauty, bicolor angel, and several damsels before I finally asked the lfs if the crabs could possibly be eating them. And YES they certainly can evidently. What a rube! What a maroon! Me not you. Good luck.
