Above: In this picture is a nice Freshwater Red Crayfish, crawling across the bottom of one of our aquariums, when one of us snapped this picture.
Comments: These are Crayfish that we rarely see in the live fish stores or in the online fish stores that we visit. Premium crayfish like these Crayfish are more hardy and more colorful than Crayfish from other sources.
Origin: This Lobster's
ancestors lived in northern Mexico and the southern United States, but
it is now an invasive species in many parts of the word, and also lives
in many aquariums all over the world.
Behaviors: They usually stay at the bottom of the tank, and have quite a personality.
Compatibility: Some recommended tank mates include any community fish, some small fish may be easy for these lobsters to get their claws on, so watch out. Click hereto read more about compatible groups of inverts.
Feeding: Premium Fish Food Pellets. Click here to learn more about and shop online for premium fish foods.
Aquarium Size: These guys can do well living in a 20-gallon aquarium, but of course bigger is better.
Live Plants are beautiful, improve the water quality. Click here for more about aquarium plants.
Aquarium Filter: Bio-Wheel Filters are highly recommended. A Penguin 200B in an aquarium with 20 to 30-gallons is OK. Click here to learn more about aquarium filters.
The addition of Lava Rocks will keep nitrates in the ideal range. Click here to learn more about using Lava Rocks in aquariums.
Gender: Males are usually more colorful with larger claws.
Names: This species name is Procambarus clarkii.
Variations: There are some variations throughout the US.
