If you want crayfish, you will have to avoid fish as much as possible as crayfish are skilled ambush predators which will certainly hunt down your fish. What fish fascinates you a lot? Crays will have to be ditched out of the list in my opinion if you want fish.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Jellybean parrots and blood parrots are not community fish so the answer is no. The latter will outgrow the tank eventually. If you are fascinated with cichlids, look into apistos, rams, keyholes, Lake Tanganyikan shelldwellers or kribensis. Some tetras, rasboras, plecos and cories can be added as well but research which pleco you want first before you get them as some of them will eventually outgrow your tank.

thanks i will do some looking around on some fish and make a list tommrrow and post them up so that way you guys could tell me if they go well with each other, and as for the placo i already have a common one so it is only 3'in right now so when it grows a little more i will find a good home for him ...oh and sorry if i wasnt clear this new tank im setting up is going to be the tank for aggressive fish not community thats my other tank i have.

in my 29 gallon i have 2 angels 3 otos a pleco and an accidental snail :)

works out perfectly fine wiht alot of room for everyone. Have to be careful with angels as they arent too tolerant of many tankmates.

aye, i do. They grow over a period of time though, they arent always going to be smaller :P haha. Anyway though they are interesting to watch them interact with each other and at feeding time. I've been told 2 adult angels are fine in a 29..id ask someone elses advice before if you want to do that.
