I am considering Cambarellus Patzcuarensis (dwarf orange crayfish) for my 20 gal freshwater tank when i finally stock it (cycling now - have four plants now, a few more on the way and will be changing the lighting)

I am most likely going to get either crystal red shrimp or cherry red shrimp, a pair of dwarf gourami,  a few guppies, 3-4 bandit and/or panda corys, and a few mollies/platys/swordtails (haven't decided which of these three).  I'm not sure if I am considering any other species at this time, still researching LOL.

My question is even though the little orange crayfish is only 1 1/2 - 2 inches big, is he thank much of a danger to the smaller fishes?  Are the fishes a danger to him? 

I can see me becoming victim to MTS (multiple tank syndrome) very soon if I don't fail with this tank!

Yes he is that much of a danger. Though crayfish are omnivors they do require a good amount of protein in their diet. Your other fish and shrimp will become victims. Also your plants won't survive. So a seperate species only tank is in order.
