Crayfish will grab your fish while they sleep, then eat your plants for
dessert.  Not a great addition to the planted community.  There are lots of
nice, appropriate FW shrimp, though.

Sting rays are neat fish, but need a LARGE tank with lots of sandy
substrate to dig in.  They're not really suitable for the average planted
tank either.
