Lobster needs?
 
hi yall.

what needs do lobsters have.... Such as does it need to get out of the water or can it stay under at all times?

Also will it or my fish try and eat eachother?

Thanks Dan

A crayfish will do its best to eat your fish. Whether it can actually get one depends on the individual crayfish and the fish it lives with. I have had great success keeping them with barbs.

Crayfish need at least a 20, a tight lid without openings, a cave to hide in and stuff to crawl on.

Adding to what was already said since you wanted to have a nicely planted tank, they will like that too for Food :-)

Yeah, they don't need to get out of the water. And yes, they will definitely uproot and possibly eat your plants, so fake plants are the way to go.
