I saw a dead hermit crab in my btank this morning when I was already dressed for work. Now I am worried that this may cause my ammonia level to raise.

It may be just the crab molting. No need to worry about it.

I bought 3 Chromis today, I did the "drip" acclimatization method now they are in my tank.

Great, are these your first fish? That is a very exciting step in our hoppby. Keep tabs on your ammonia/nitrite levels for a few days. I don't think you will have a raise in it, but it's a good habit to get into when adding fish.

The concern I have with these chromis is that they are always hiding behind the rock. I see them swimming from a distance but as soon as i approach the tank they go hiding.

They will settle down and be out when you are near the tank.
