Bottom feeders with crawfish

I have a crawfish in my 55 tank and I'd like to add bottom feeders such as catfish. I've had bottom feeders like loaches and plecos with my crawfish and she's never bothered them. Should I be worried if I put catfish in with my crawfish?

There might be fighting for territory. What species did you have in mind.

I was thinking maybe some upside down cats or porthole or something that doesn't exceed 5-6 inches

What kind of crawfish do you have? If it's one of the dwarf versions you should be fine so long as you don't overcrowd the bottom and have plenty of hidey holes. I'm not sure about the larger crawfish as I haven't kept them before...

He's not a dwarf, he is full sized. I have nothing on the bottom except him and have lots of caves and hiding places on the bottom.
