xperience is, that if the shrimp id fair sized and is in the tank before the hawk, it will leave it alone, but anything added after the hawk is fair game, of course, ymmv.

I had (still have) a Flame Hawk with two fairly large sized cleaner skunk shrimps. They co-habitated well for about a year. Then one day I could only find one of the two shrimps, a few days later I see the antennae sticking out of the hawks mouth.

The only thing any of my hawkfish have eaten was food I put in the tank, or small shrimp added after the hawk. However, it is a gamble, the information you were given is accurate, but each experience will vary. I've never seen one go after a hermit or a snail, no matter when they were added.
