Green shore crabs are predatory and are probably not reef safe, periwinkles just munch algae as do them tiny tiny snails. 

 

They seem happy at 26°C in my set up. They are eating and such... i wouldnt put native fish in a tropical tank though as they would probably die quickly. In a cold marine yeah sure if you got the set up.
