I have only kept crayfish by themselves. The one time I kept them with fish, the fish disappeared one by one. Crayfish are actually pretty good hunters at night. They will pick off your fish while they are sleeping, one by one until they are all gone. Even if your fish are large enough that they will now get killed by the cray, they will probably be at least a little stressed by it.

@Lora- So far he hasn't picked off the minnows. ^^; (Hatchetfish might be the answer though because I am pretty sure they never leave the top. I'll have to ask some expert first though. Otherwise he'd be forever alone. :'D)

@kitten- Yeah, it's cycled now. X3 (I put a plant into the 20 gal to help them and for awhile it was fine, but all of a sudden they decided to tear it to shreds, poor plants. :P)

Nope, I've never had a saltwater tank. :/

However, I was forced to move my fish early because the 20 gal's electricity failed (and all my fish demand high oxygen levels). 5 of my barbs dropped dead within a few days, another is sick, and the other is just catching it. D: (I think it is a parasite that arrived with my new barbs.... their treatment was supposed to be given to them earlier but the person I have take care of my fish when I am gone forgot....) Thankfully no-one else has it.... :/
*carefully monitored every fish and only barbs showed signs*

(ah the Cray is in the one gallon alone until I fix the 20.)

I'm hoping it is only a barb thing. :/ (I would hate if my older danios caught it...)

My last tiger is barely hanging on and the Rosy was still hard to catch (I moved them to a 10 gal tank). I hope they both pull through, but I have my doubts on the Tiger. :/ (she is the worst off)

Yeah, I put them on medicine. The Rosy is getting better, but the tiger deteriorated even more. She wasn't getting any better and had been suffering enough. I decided it was best to end it all....
