Blue crayfish

Can a blue crayfish be in a tank with live plants? Are there any other fish that can live with a crayfish?

I went to my LFS and they said take a lot of the baby crayfish because they sell them for $20 each and they are not much bigger. They said hatchetfish are good with them because of the water levels they live in. And live plants are fine with crayfish also.
