Most invertebrates would be eaten and even larger inverts like crayfish would try to eat sleeping fish.

Craysfish can last in a cichlid tank for small periods for some people but will molt and eventually be eaten.. alot of cichlids eat inverts in the wild. So its advised not to mix the 2..

I'd be worried about the fish. Crayfish are nocturnal and could attack a sleeping cichlid
