Snails, Shrimp, Crayfish with Discus

As you may know I am in the process of setting up a 90gal which will house a bunch of discus. Is it ok to throw some snails/shrimp/crayfish in there too?

90gal: 2x Tangerine Discus, 2x Clown Pleco, 2x Catfish.
75gal + 10gal sump: 2x Large Goldfish, 1x Common Pleco, 14x Leopard Danios
55gal: 5x Angelfish, 1x Common Pleco, 8x SIlver Tip Tetras, 16x Neon Tetras, 8x Albino Corys

I agree with you, Shane.
That crayfish is bad news for tanks with fish. They will eventually kill your fish. Inverts with large claws should never be mixed with fish. Not even shrimps with large claws.

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.
