Identify crab in gallery

I bought this crab from a local pet store who called it a spider crab - It has an arrow shaped body, tiny pinchers and is fuzzy - my daughter wanted one but her expert told her it would kill small fish and as I have seahorses and want to convert in time to a coral tank wanter if I should keep her? Can you tell anything from the photo in my gallery?

Sounds like an Arrow Crab. Scientific Name: Stenorhynchus seticornis.
