Is there any crayfish that can live in my tank with gouramis, a couple loaches, a lowsy clown pleco, frogs and my pimpin' congo tetras and won't eat or kill my fish just because its bored?

I just read about a blue florida crayfish it does say they can eat small fish but would it really be a threat to my bottom feaders and how much do they normally cost?

Not sure about cost, but the lobster will do damage to a planted tank. They are fairly aggressive. Also, you should make sure there are not may hiding spots for the lobster to ambush your fish.

You should just find one in your yard! They like moist places! We just found one, they will hurt you fish. Some bigger fish can eat them and they can eat little fish! Just be careful, they can really mess up your tank!

You might find that crayfish are often not recommended to be kept with fish especially bottom dwellers.;)
