Aquarium
Lobsters and Crayfish
Click here to buy an Aquarium Lobster and Crayfish from us.
     
     
Shown above, a Papua Lobster. These guys are not exactly black or blue. Usually they look almost black. But in sunlight they look very very dark blue almost black. Later when they've grown to be old and very large, some of them look more blue, like the one in the bottom picture. Whatever their color they always look exciting!
     

Scientific Names
There are many species of Crayfish, and their scientific names are almost all unknown to us. Click here to go to another website that discusses their scientific names and how to identify the various species of Crayfish.

       

Comments
Many aquarists and especially kids mention that they enjoy watching Crayfish, and Crayfish are fun to watch. But Crayfish are quarrelsome and aggressive. They will usually bother and sometimes eat Crabs, Ghost Shrimp, Snails and Frogs.
 
Crayfish are covered with an exoskeleton that is rigid and doesn't change in shape by much. To grow larger a Crayfish sheds its exoskeleton, and for a day or two is covered only with soft tissues which harden into a new exoskeleton. You may see an old discarded exoskeleton on the bottom of your aquarium, unless the Crayfish has already eaten it to recycle the nutrients into the exoskeleton.
 
Crayfish are also called Crawdads.

     
Blue Crayfish or Blue Lobster. Information and picture.   This picture shows a 2.5" Blue Crayfish in our facility. These are also called Blue Lobsters.
     

Appropriate Home
n aquarium with an external power filter with a BIO-Wheel and a maximum of 1/4-inch of gravel. Crayfish can live in an aquarium with or without an aquarium heater at a temperature from about 65 to 82 degrees F.

     

Recommended Diet
Crayfish will eat virtually anything on the bottom of the aquarium such as pieces of uneaten food, Shrimps, Crabs, Snails, and Frogs. In this way they help keep an aquarium clean, but they are not a substitute for regular maintenance. Click here for more about aquarium maintenance.

     

Compatibility
As mentioned above Crayfish generally make life miserable for small animals living on the bottom of their aquarium including other Crayfish. It seems to be best to keep just one unless you have a large aquarium. Crayfish usually cannot bother fish that stay off the bottom.
