Mandarin Crabs and Land Hermit Crabs: Will They Get Along?

I've been doing some research on land hermit crabs since I've been planning to keep a trio in a 10 gallon tank, I came across an article about mandarin crabs. Mandarin crabs are terrestrial crustaceans, like the land hermit crab, that rely on humidity and water dishes in order to breath in captivity. They are true crabs, measure no longer than a centimeter across and pose no possible harm to hermit crabs as their claws are too tiny to do, if any, much damage.

The question is, is it a good idea to keep them together?
