Looking for hermit crab owners

My daughter brought back a couple of hermit crabs from the beach over spring break. We moved them into a 10 gal tank, provide regular and salt water, food, and things to climb on.

We never see them. I mean NEVER. We know they're alive because 1) the tank doesn't smell like dead crabs and 2) the water level goes down and the food disappears. Occasionally I can see them burrowed in the substrate if they happen to be up against the side of the tank.

My daughter says she can hear them moving around during the night, and I get that they're nocturnal, but so far these aren't very fun pets. Are we doing something wrong?
