Dwarf Crayfish
 
So I have a crayfish, and I have mixed feelings about him. I bought him months ago without doing any research, and came to realize that he's very destructive. He uprooted all of my plants, ate some, and attacked other fish. Eventually, I had to put him into a tank of his own with the feeder fish. He's entertaining, but you just can't keep him with other fish.

Now, I just read that there are dwarf crayfish, who won't uproot your plants or attack other fish. It is said that they grow to 1-1.5 inches. Has anybody else seen them, and are they common? I would love to get one for my community tank.
