Hermit Crab Spawning

I happened to be watching the other night when one of my hermits started acting funny. It kept coming halfway out of its shell and then going back in really fast. Then suddenly, when it went in one time, a whole bunch of little things came out of it.

They looked kind of like little copepods. All of my fish had a nice snack for a couple minutes and then they were pretty much all gone.

Does anyone know how often hermits do this?
