anyone know anything about hermit crabs??????

I had gotten hermit crabs from a friend in august... two of them. One died in spetember so I bought another as a friend fir the original crab. She died a few weeks ago leaving this new on behind on his own. Therefore I decided to buy two more crabs. The one I cutrrently owned was a small crab and I bought a another small one and one big one for that is all the pet store had. So tonight I was thnking I dony have any big shells for the big crab to change in. But then I was in my room and heard the crabs crawling around and one of the new ones.. the small one was COMPLETELY out of his shell sitting on the sponge. I thougjt maybe he was changing shells so I circled them around him. But I then got scared that something would happen with the other crabs so I made then a tiny temperary habitat in a box I had. I am just so worried for my crab idk what to do.. I dont know how to help him. I have never seen him out of his shell other then the one timw he was climbing the tree. Like.. i thouhht he was dead at first when I bought him. Im just freaking out... I dont want to find him dead. He might be stressed and stuff idk how to change this. I have never owned crabs before other then the ones I took from my friend because she wasnt caring for them properly. I just igh.. its stressig me out and idk Im just afraid Im going to find him dead. Or he is going to stay like this for a few days and the other crabs are going to be stuck in this little box forever because i dont want to touch the crab thats out of its shell.. idk how to move him without causing him some harm. He hasnt been socialized so he wont come to me or anything. I have only had him for a week or so. Just skfjsnfkwnfkg Im not going to be able to sleep tonight!!!!
