crayfish identification please
2 Attachment(s)
Ok, so I was at the LFS, and they had a one clawed crayfish up for adoption.. I guess they have a crayfish up for adoption every month, because they get one each time a shipment of goldfish come in, and they have no interest in selling crayfish.

Anyways, the breeders put the crayfish in to eat the detritus during shipment.

Could anyone help me figure out what he is?

Here's a picture.

Yikes, that crayfish is as big as that ram! Do you have this crayfish in your tank??

the ram is a juvenile, and the crayfish hasn't bothered any of my fish yet, seems entirely uninterested. Hasn't eve touched the ghost shrimps. He really loves the algae wafers though, and loves picking through the substrate like a giant shrimp.

no idea what kind he is though. Any thoughts? He's about 2-2.5 inches.

I have no idea. Hopefully someone will. I'm glad he's not interested in your fish. If I was a fish I'd be scared of him! lol
