you can pull big crayfish's claws off. this minimizes their danger to
tankmates. basically just hold onto their claw and a little twist. they kind
of let them go like a lizard tail. they will grow back.
generally if they are fed sinking shrimp pellets they dont bother other fish
in the tank... they will however fight among themselves.
crayfish will tear up a planted tank w/ a lot of snipping.

i guess different species act differently.
i brought some back from florida... very small red ones. they grew very
quickly and were exceptionally destructive.
btw... in north america how many species of crayfish are there?
