I have kept these for several years now.  I've heard lots of different info abut keeping these, but that said, here's my experience.

Mine are ravenous plant eaters.  I made the mistake of thinking they would behave like most of the dwarf crays and leave my plants alone.  Almost overnight, I lost a nicely planted tank to a single crayfish.

Mine DO NOT attack fish.  I've even kept them with fry for clean-up duties without any problems.  They are opportunistic feeders and will eat any dead fish, snails, etc.

While mine are normally brown, if kept in soft water with low-light conditions, they turn a beautiful blue.
