Flounder with Goby and Crabs

I just got back from the LFS and they said I wouldn't have an issue with the new flounder with my existing tank fish. Main ones I'm concerned about is a sand sifting goby and a couple crabs that I have. The crabs are small, about 1/2 inch and the goby is 6 inches.

Thoughts?

I had a flounder with goby and no issues. But the goby was pretty good size so the flounder couldn't eat him.

Feeding a flounder small feeder fish is very fun to watch!

Yep, everything on shrimp and fish that fits its mouth will end up in its stomach.
Also, flounders are ambush or sit-and-wait predators, so fish will not be able to learn to stay away from it.

Plus they get large and require tanks with a large footprint and an appropriately sized sand zone with fine sand.

I kept some babies of North Atlantic flounders that I caught on the North Sea as bycatch. They are fun for a while, but usually, all you see of them are the eyes that peek out of the sand.
