Product Description

Procambarus Clarkii sp. "Red"

Origin: originally USA, now: almost world wide
Max body size: 12cm+
Keeping: You can keep 5 or more in an aquarium of 100cmx40cm. 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. 300 and more eggs for big females. Make sure to provide enough room and food for the fry. Cannibalism begins to get extreme with 2-3 cm if too crowded.
spread: wild type (red): most common, white, blue and orange: common
remark: The wild type is red, there is a blue, orange and a white color morph that is commonly available. Many more color morphs might be out there.      

                 These are the reddest Clarkii I have seen, you won't be dissapointed.
