I would probably quarantine just to make sure there aren't any problems and to prevent you from having to treat the whole tank

Nah just toss snails and crabs in. They wont carry anything that can hurt your fish or coral down the line. Id wait a bit to add shrimp though as they can be far more sensitive.
