BLUE Cloning Crayfish (Marbled Cray)
So a friend of mine in the area got a brown cloning cray a while back. The first batch of babies were, of course, brown...then the second batch was half brown and half BLUE. The third is all blue, along with the fourth. Is this some weird color variation (don't understand how considering they clone themselves) or what? She kept one from the third and she's currently berried up. We'll see what happens.
Note: Her water has not changed in alkalinity (what some are saying cause it) and the diet has always been the same. So it can't be that.
Well, I bought one (for REALLY cheap :D) from her and have her set up in a ten all to herself (well, and some snails and live plants). This one is from the fourth batch of the original mom and is all blue. Just got her home today and she's in her tank (pictures soon...she's really small and doesn't want to come out of hiding right now). I'll let everyone know when she's big enough to berry up and hopefully this blue thing will prove true.
