I wouldn't be worried about "live" sand. The sand bed will quickly populate and become live in a few short months. If cost is a serious issue, i'd rather see you get everything in place immediately and let this tank start to mature.

it says shipping/handling N/A ? strange, maybe when I place an acutal order it will show?
I placed an order, but before you enter your credit card number the total shows, and no shipping or handling

I think 5 hermits are plenty for a 20 gallon. In fact, depending on the tank, you many only want 2 or 3 for now. Most hermits slowly starve to death because of overstocking.

When it comes to diet, you should be rotating 4 or 5 different foods. Brine is not really a healthy diet, but it is great for triggering a feeding response in difficult to feed fish. I personally feed Formula One and Formula Two pellets by Ocean Nutrition, 2 different flake foods, and several different frozen foods, including Angel Formula.
