will the electric blue hermit become destructive

I saw an electric blue hermit at the petshop the other day and thought about getting one because they were fairly big and hard to get, so I have read, and I thought that would be a great addition to my tank. I began to think about what could happen with a new hermit that size and I considered aggression, and other destructive things. Considering my tank inhabitants below will this addition be OK.

at most if there aren't enough new shells for them to move into they may kill some snails

the electric blue hermits are herbs its the red one you have to look out for but they still get very big about the size of ur fist so be warned
i have a white spotted red hermit that has doubled in size over 3-4 monthes and im quite shure he would rip anything to shreads if i gave him the chance

The reds ones to get are called reef scarlet hermits. They are identifiable by the bright yellow eye stalks. No yellow, don't buy them. They would otherwise just be common mexican reds and not completely coral safe.

Cheers
Steve
