I saw a australian red claw at my local aquarium dedicated for freshwater creatures. His guy may be... that. I had him for about 3weeks now, he was in a tank that was uncycled for a week or so.
This guy also took out a frontosa. So this guy is super hardcore
Oh my... when I read he was eating cichlids I was thinking, this CAN'T be a CPO! My male will lunge at my female bettas, but he's not trying to eat them, he's just trying to drive them away. Both of my CPOs are full grown, and they are only 1.5 inches. I can't, in my wildest dreams, imagine at CPO taking out a cichlid! I think your crays need a tank of their own like yesterday!
Yes, there is no way he could have been a CPO at that size! I think you'd better either keep your crayfish alone, or get rid of it and get some CPOs, where you can keep them with fish, and they are so very cute.
