Looking for some odd tankmates for my 37g Invert

I currently have 10 assorted nerites and RCS..I'm not sure how many. Can't seem to count them they are always undercover..let's say 12. I am looking to add a creature or 2 that are unique. Possibly a crayfish..Would like it to stay under 4 inches and must be compatible with everyone. I am thinking CPO..but I recently found white crayfish..

Let me know what you suggest..I am sure there are cool critters out there I haven't discovered yet.

Do you have a price range? Some of the bigger inverts can have a helluva price tag on 'em.

As for smaller crayfish species...'

Viper Shrimp (Atya gabonensi) 6"
Red Lobster (Procambarus sp) 5"
Hammers Cobalt Blue Lobster (Procambarus sp) 5"

It depends on the critter. I would pay about $30 for a cray (CPO). If I decide on something I usually get a pair..so around $60 for a pair. (And that's for the higher quality ones...I know there are different grades on these things like with RCS. I have seen some I would never buy) Its just depends though..I am looking into crabs too..hmm what other inverts are there..

I really like the Viper Shrimp and Cobalt Blue Lobster. :3

Only problem with trying to get a pair of them is that the supplier is not likely to be able to sex them.
