Hawkfish + arrow crab = trouble?

I have a longnose hawkfish and a chromis in my tank, and I'd like to add an arrow crab I saw at the LFS. I know longnose hawkfish may attack/eat hermit crabs and ornamental shrimp, but what about arrow crabs?

Am I giving the hawkfish a new tank mate, or dinner?

Fish are friends, not food.

it's up the the hawk, but as leo mentioned, if you purchased a larger one, it might be ok.
