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?

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.
