The crayfish will eventually mutilate and/or eat the angelfish. Its what crayfish do.

The girl's got crabs!
What species of crayfish are they, do you know?
Do you have pictures of your tank that show the decor and filtration?
The setup and species can have an impact on how many fish you lose and how quickly, but generally speaking most cray with fish setups turn into cray only setups very quickly!

*squint* I'm bad with my American crays, but it looks like it is at least small enough not to be a hassle for a few months to come. The small ones to moult and grow quickly, but you should have an idea of when it becomes capable of eating your fish before it actually succeeds.
Try to identify it if you can, as you mighth have gotten one of the smaller species that - while still opportunistic carnivores that enjoy a hunt - should be able to co-exist with larger fish. Keep your decor low and try to reduce the desire/possibility of climbing
Fair warning though, whenever you mix something like cray with fish, you have to look upon the prey species as sacrificial. I'm not saying that it will happen, it can be done, but it does have a higher degree of risk than most other combinations. There is no real foolproof way of making it work. If you are happy that you may lose some fish at some point, then you can continue, if not, separate the cray and fish to prevent possible losses.
