A crayfish will do its best to eat your fish. Whether it can actually get one depends on the individual crayfish and the fish it lives with. I have had great success keeping them with barbs.

Crayfish need at least a 20, a tight lid without openings, a cave to hide in and stuff to crawl on.

125 - BGK, chanchito cichlid, pictus cats, silver dollars, palmas bichir
125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta

Adding to what was already said since you wanted to have a nicely planted tank, they will like that too for Food

Yeah, they don't need to get out of the water. And yes, they will definitely uproot and possibly eat your plants, so fake plants are the way to go.
