The claws will eventually grow back, my dad got a crayfish with no claws and figured the fish would be fine. About a month later it had it's claws back ans was killing all the fish.

Which is not really true. If your tank is big enough and your fish is big enough, they will not harm each other. I have a 7inch pleco with a 6 inch crayfish. They dont kill each other when in close proximity or bump into each other...but it's a 3ft aquarium...chances are they dont see each other much.
