I have kept them before plus i had them in my store.
Do you have small fish, like the coral gobies sort of size or any shrimp ? if you do then they are at risk, I had a sally lightfoot capture a cleaner wrasse by the tail and would have killed it if i had not intervened, they don't have a bad rep for nothing, IMO ANY crabs in a reef tank are bad, even hermits as they are normally found on sandbeds, crabs are opportunist scavangers and will take anything that they can grab to eat, even emeralds.

No no fish yet... right now my stock is 3 astrea, 3 nassarius snails, 4 blue legged hermits, and 1 emerald crab... maybe I will just wait on getting a sally but they are really neat looking dudes!
