I did some research for you.
Here are the links for you to read about what you bought.
your geophagus jurapari will grow to 10", i am afraid your tank is too small.
I would suggest you re-home these.
Most crayfish are agressive or semi aggressive apparently, you might want to stay away from them in a 29 gallons they grow too big anyway.
And of course did you cycle your tank before stocking it?
Here are the links:

My one cent advise, research, read and ask the forum before buying.
SMALL TANKS = SMALL FISHES (everyone here will tell you that and it works... )
