Electric Blue Crayfish
very cool looking Crayfish, loves tunnels and caves in your set up.
Max body size: 5"
Keeping: You can keep 1 pair in an aquarium of 24"x12"cm. Bigger tanks allow for a greater number of individuals. A wide range of pH and GH is possible as long as one avoids the extremes. Very tolerant to a wide range of water conditions and quality. You can literally breed them in plastic buckets.
Behaviour: like most crayfish these are omnivorous and will eat your plants Make sure to provide enough room if you keep several specimens, if not they will reduce their numbers with each molt.
How to tell apart males from females: As usual
Breeding: As usual. Make sure to provide enough room and food for the fry. Cannibalism begins to get extreme with 1-2 inches if too crowded.
spread: blue type: common white and wild type: rare
remark: The wild type is brown, there is a blue and a white color morph. If you breed white with you you get pale blue crayfish in the F1

Arrived one day after being shipped. Very healthy and active, a little shy at first and spent after few days hidden in the plants after molting, but is now digging a tunnel system under the drift wood and stock piling food. very interesting to watch
