I can't find a lot online about these particular crabs. I have one small cleaner shrimp, 1 small nassarius snail and 4 small hermit crabs with one small green star polyp. it is a small 5 gallon tank with rocks

Do you know what type of crab it is or what they called it at the LFS? Picture? Without knowing, there is no way to tell since there are multiple types of crabs that are red and common in the hobby. Most would not be suitable.

Small, reef safe Hermit crab are pretty common.  Mine like to flip over a small coral in the sand bed on occasion.  Don't know how they get along with cleaner shrimp.
