My local Aquarist shop, When I asked about "Live Rock/Sand"(I have a Somewhat established Tank though), He said that I dont need it. Because in most cases, it Dies.

IMO, He should be just Fine. It is the Long Term Exposure to "Chlorinated" Tap water that is Harmful. Unless he fell into Straight Bleach(Chlorine). U did a Great Job of Rinsing him the Best ya could.
Really, I wouldnt fret too much.

I have that 12 Gal "Nano" And I Love it! Sadly though, It just recently CRASHED! I dont know what Happened. The only thing I can think of, Is, I added some Coral and Shells I found at a Beach in Naples FLA. The Coral I added was "Dead"? It was just the Skeleton/Shell. And the Shells were decomposing...

Again I want to say no. I wish I could keep voting that way over and over just for the simple fact that hermit crabs are NEVER the center and main focus of salt water tank. They are cleaners and add ons. No one buys a salt water aquarium specifically to have aquatic hermit crabs. Marine hermit crab...
