    i was just wondering if these 2 can live together as the shrimp are fast moving and the cray fish is slow, would it be ok?

    Shrimp with full size crayfish will be eaten, but that's a good thing because the crayfish will get nutrients it needs that way.

    Shrimp are much safer with dwarf crayfish, since they are roughly the same size. Again, if the crayfish gets a shrimp here and there, it's not a bad thing.

    im planing on putting some fast breeding fish with mine just because it will give him some calcium.
