I'm still thinking about your little guy for some reason. Stolen, compliments of AZ garden...
Cherax Blue Lobster
Cherax quadricarinatus "Blue"
a.k.a. Blue Yabbie Lobster, Red-Claw "Blue" Crayfish,
Size: Up to 12" pH: 6.5 - 8.3 , Temp: 72-85, Origin: New Guinea
This is a semi-aggressive omnivore scavenger, that WILL eat all of the left over food your fish miss, as well as detritus and other waste off the bottom of your aquarium. Although this lobster will eat dead or dying fish as well, it is just too slow to catch healthy fish. Colors can change from bright blue or camouflage to a bluish-brown to hide from predators. We'd say these lobsters are easy, if not simple, to keep and care for.
