Arrow crab - good or bad?

OK..my lfs had some arrow crabs that the kids love to watch. They said that they are safe, don't eat fish, don't eat snails, just eat stuff in the rock/ground. They were in fact living in a tank with some peppermint shrimp (many actually), other types of crabs and some small fish (I think blennies).

So i got one, but it in the tank last night, then started reading around a bit... some say they are bad crabs, can sometimes get hungry and catch a fish, others say they are fine. I have some tiny featherdusters that we like looking at, and sounds like they will eat these...

Should i return the arrow crab? Or should I "wait and see"???

90g BB, basement sump/fuge; CSS 125; Tang, Clown, misc snails, peppermint shrimp, other smaller critters

I have personally seen an arrow crab with a small clown in his claws.
