Red Crayfish, also commonly called Red Lobsters in the trade, are great scavengers that are hardy in many water conditions. They require lots of places to hide, like caves and rock formations. Male Crayfish are generally brighter in color with larger front claws while the females are more subtle in color with smaller claws. They can grow to 5"+ and generally get along with most aquarium fish, however they may catch and eat some slower moving fish. Crayfish can be territorial and aggressive with their own species, so it is recommended to keep one per 20 gallons with adequate decor for hiding. Also great for ponds! Easy to breed in captivity and great cleanup crew!
