People in the south here eat crayfish alot but I am from the south and have never tried them so not sure if they are tasty or not.

Kindest Regards,
Amanda

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

are they fresh water,or do they need brackish ?

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

Yes, they are commonly eaten - but I don't eat seafood! lol

They are freshwater - they are prolific in dams and streams. They MAY eat fish, but they prefer veggies :)

I can because my fishes are fast :) goldfish

Wouldn't put a yabbie in with anything fancy and slow, or aggressive - some fish like to eat yabbies!

You can almost treat yabbies like cichlids - they are territorial, like veggies and can be a bit cranky! lol
