Sounds like your hermit molted and what you saw was just the skeletal frame "moving" from your flow. A lot of people dont realize that hermits molt their exoskeleton and then move back into their shell.

Yup, they do. When I found my first molted hermit crab I thought it was dead. Showed up 5 days later just fine. They will go and hide after a molt until their skeleton hardens.
