CPO dwarf crayfish a betta friendly tankmate?

For a long long while I've wanted a CPO or two in my 10 gallon. Is it advisable to have one in there with the 5 apple snails, the MTS population and Zephyr, the delta tail male betta?

For the Betta. A tank mate can not be colorful, long fins, look like or be related to Bettas. I am not food with crawfish but know tank ages remember a backup plan is a must.

I've always heard CPO's are fine as they have very small pincers and aren't aggressive. I don't think anyone on the forum has one though..

So the Betta is the main consideration here.

Any more thoughts on this? A Betta and a Dwarf Crayfish together with nothing else?

I dont see anything wrong with it. Only issue is the crayfish could grab a hold of the fins. I've been tempted to buy one too!
