    GREAT news about the eggs/babies!!! I have approx. 25ish babies. Plus I gave a few to my daughter-in-law for her 38 gal. tank. She & the kids LOVE them!! :) I have NO idea what happened with Ms. Marbles - it just makes me so sad! I suppose the molting time is the most vulnerable time, huh?

    Yes! Both of my marbled crayfish are carrying eggs, so expecting loads of babies!

    Sorry about Ms Marbles, and sorry about the late reply, I haven't been active lately. At least you have a bunch of Ms. Marbles Jr's. I beleive my crayfish either have eggs or recently molted, as I have not seen any of them out in over a month (though I do see their feelers sticking out of their PVC pipes. Any Idea how many babies you have?

    OH no - guess what???? Ms. Marbles died (SOB!!!)! NO IDEA what happened - she molted and the next morning she was dead. :( Sure, I have her babies, but not the same as having Ms. Marbles!!!

    Those crustacean/ vegetable flakes sound good. Crayfish aren't very picky, the most important part of feeding is mantaining the balance between nutrients. These crayfish like 60% plant matter and 40% meat. They also love anacharis as a treat!
