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 had a Crayfish he ate all my real plants, all my comunity fish, my cory cats, my 2x filter feeding shrimps and they was the same size as him and he also ate my baby white/black fin O's, i say Crayfish = bad (but thats just me)

I agree with you, Shane. :thumbsup:
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.
