I hope your luck continues because a couple of months is a really short amount of time...

My blue crays didn't kill any fish for maybe 2 months . They get bigger more aggressive and smarter over time . I have mine in a 46 or 48( can't recall ) . Anyway I stocked my tank properly for living with the crays . Rosy barbs and golden wonder killifish . But several molts and a couple months later they learned how to get to the top and ate all the killifish. I'd keep a super close eye if I were you. How big is your cray right now?

Yes, having floating cover for the crayfish to work will allow them to catch more fish

And yes, they learn new hunting techniques utilizing what's available to them. One of my favorites is using it's food as bait for the fish.

He's about 5 inches give or take. We think he killed one tetra. But other than that he lives the other fish alone. Our gourami sits next to him and he doesn't do any thing. Our pictus catfish has laid next to him a lot of times and has never once touched him. As far as I seen he keeps to himself
