I wouldn't put crabs in a small tank as they tend to like getting out and are adept at finding a way. As for crayfish/lobsters, do you have plants or a lot of hiding spots? Crayfish tend to not be able to get most fish except the slowest. They tend to ambush fish with a decent hiding spot. Crayfish are notoriously destructive on plants.

With any combination you run the risk of either the puffer making dinner out of the crustacean or the other way around. I have seen stranger things done and the creatures lived happily so you never know. Just be prepared for an expensive fish/crustacean dinner if you try it.

But I don't want to come across as recommending it as I really wouldn't do it. I think that it will likely end in the loss of one or the other.
