    she probably had a bad molt. It's fairly common in crayfish, where they molt then die. how big are the babies now?

    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?

    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!!!

    Ok - thanks for the info. As always!!! :)

    So do I feed them flakes (Ocean Nutrition Formula two) twice a day PLUS the algae tab? Or just one feeding of the flakes & then the tab?

    Don't know how many babies, but when I read your question, I went over to the tank and counted an even dozen easily. So I'm thinking more, maybe?
