Orange dwarf Mexican crayfish
Okay so I just wanna know if these guys are community friendly and how big they get... They'd be going into my fluval 12 g if I got them, ... And tips?

Yes, they are community and plant friendly. Of course they are opportunistic and could catch vulnerable fish - young, old and sick - but healthy fish and shrimp will do just fine. In fact, you have to be concerned about the fish eating them, especially when they molt. You could try 2 in the 12 gallon, but would need to provide several hiding spots. The spots need to be small enough that the fish can't get in there, as they could kill them after they've shed their shells.
