How do Hermit Crabs and "Crab" Crabs go together?

How do Hermit Crabs and "Crab" Crabs go together? would it work? like, if I went and got a "small" specie of crab, would they live in harmony? or would one eat the other or fight...

thanks in advance!

Emerald crabs are $5 - $8 depending on where you live, etc. There are many species of crabs for the home aquarium.
Arrow, Decorator; Emerald, Pom Pom, Porcelain, Sally Lightfoot, etc. ranging in size, price and aggressiveness.

Wait... Decorator? as In pet store "Tree Crabs" that everyone like to call hermits b/c they live in a shell? you mean those are good for SW Aquariums too?
