Calico Crab?

I was at my LFS today and I saw a calico crab, I was wondering if it would be safe to add him to my fish only grouper tank?

Calico crab is probably a Sally lightfoot crab. I`ve had two over the years and never had any problem but others say they have had them go after fish and other inverts. With crabs you just have to keep a close eye out.
