That would be hermit crabs and they are basically land dwelling, or different kinds are saltwater hermits.
These just make babies in the form of eggs and then all of a sudden you have snails, which come with their own shells.
You might be over feeding btw.
If you ever see them all heading for the top of the tank, you know you have a problem in your tank and better do a big pwc
. (and test your water of course) Due to too much ammonia, nitrites or nitrates.
