Hermit crab mystery help A.S.A.P

Hey I just bought a new hermit crab the guy in the store said he wasn't sure what type of hermit he was that If I really wanted him I'd have to watch him closely cause we dunno if he's safe with fish, anyways here's a few pics I only realised he had a huge claw when I got home he can't open it as big as it looks it's a little claw on the end of what looks like a huge claw, but I done want to take him out and put him in if he's not safe although he's really cool

Looks like a regular hermit to me. They're several different color variations but I believe that is the only differences between them.

Dwarf Zebra Hermit perhaps
Aka "lefty"
It's a defensive claw and he's perfectly safe
