Hermit Crabs, with Triggers & Puffers?

I have two different opinions from two[/code]LFS. One said Hermits will be ok, other said the triggers will eat them. What about Hermits that live in the ICW here in S. Fla. Are they ok to try in the tank? Thanks

I keep hermits and snails of all sizes with my puffer. From the beginning, I taught him through regular feedings that I was the source of food. He will take a snail from my fingers but not from around the tank. Could be luck.
