I had a small 2.5 gal with wild caught crayfish.
I originally used a whisper internal filter but switched over to an airpowered spongefilter when I noticed that the wild ones like murky waters more.

they loved my fish foods and I occasionally gave them a treat of bloodworms and shrimp.

hope that helps!

was that wink at the end implying that my input wasnt helpful? :shock: :D

good luck with your tank! crayfish are a lot of fun. Just remember to keep a tight cover on it becuase they like to shoot backwards occasionally and come out of the tank. I found my 3 inch crayfish sitting in my sink in the morning... it was still alive but dry as heck :D

Get as much info as you can on the different species. Coomon wild craws here need water in the 60's. Blue lobster need a much higher temp. Bumble bee's need another and so on. Also, live plants will help with their diet but won't last too long, veggies once in a while will help them also. Just like anyhting else, keep their diets varied as much as possible and make sure it is clean. Unlike their wild counterparts, captive bred ones don't have the immunities.

Best of luck, I think they are really cool and if I ever have room will have a few of my own.
