Not sure, but I don't believe the hermits on the beach will do well underwater. Gotta try to get $5 bucks together for one suited for your aquarium, and that likes algae. Also, may need to get to the source of the algae. Using tap water?

In Panama City Beach there is a place called Shell Island located in the bay. I went on a jet ski tour there 2 years ago and there were hermit crab all over the shallow areas. They were underwater so I think they would be okay in a tank.

i have taken a few hermits a long time ago from the beach that look exactly like the hermits that the LFS sell but right now the red tide is affecting everything i wouldn't collect anything and put it in my tank.

Where in Florida do you live? I've never seen hermits on the beach, but in the rivers around my area, you can find them easily, they're everywhere (they are underwater hermits).
