Someone tie me up!!!
I am SO dangerous when I go to my LFS - went in to get a couple of supplies and what do I bring home? A yabbie! Hahahaha. It was just so darn cute!

I've put it in my tub pond for now - might move it to a tank when I get my 110gal and organize everyone else. lol

It's name is Yabbie Dabbie Blue. :)

LOL willow you are funny. I found more info with the scientific name there pretty neat lookingbut will eat fish if they are kept together so not something I would keep. ; )

they are commonly eaten, I think Ive seen them eaten in China but that might be a different species.
