I agree with shinybetta, get a few amano (Japanese Algae eating shrimp) and some ghost shrimp... You will need to offer them sinking bottom feeder pellets AND algae wafers occasionally. I wouldn't put more than 6 in there. Crayfish have pincers for a reason...

Honestly, I'd remove your algea fish. In a 3 gallon, you don't have enough room for other fish tank mates. Cleaning the sand is your responsibility, not the fish's. Just get a turkey baster and remove the gunk that builds up once every other day. During your water changes, remove your betta, then swirl around the sand (then let it settle) before doing your water change, that way you remove a lot of the gunk.

the dwarf crayfish you're talking about needs a minimum of a 10 gallon tank.
