Awesome.....so you don't have any problems with yours crawling out of that tub......I have to keep a tight lid on my marble crayfish or I find them crawling on the floor...laffs.......neat creatures that clone themselves......my main female just died too after 6 years...at least she released about 30 tiny crays the day before.......and I still had at least a dozen or so left from other drops........they reproduce fast.....and don't seem to eat their young.....interesting critters.....

Nice! I had never heard of this kind of crayfish before seeing the post. If I have seen them, they were probably advertised as a lobster of some sort. I am guessing even though they are labeled as more peaceful then other crayfish, they are still too aggressive to keep with Bettas? (assuming they are tiny at full growth. I can't find size info.) I saw on a couple other forums people mainly raise them to feed to other fish?

side note: I just got one of those PVC elbows from the hardware store for my Betta a few hours ago. I only got one though, I wasn't sure if PVC was safe or not. If it doesn't leach chemicals into my tank I was planning on gluing aquarium gravel and maybe a silk plant to it with aquarium sealant so it blended into my tank better. :)

Best wishes

Thanks! Yes, that is play sand on the bottom. I don't have problems with them getting out because they can't climb the walls, and nothing goes from the top to the bottom of the tank, so no escaping for them!
@Twilight Storm: They grow to about 4-5 inches. I have kept them with bettas before, but they do like to nip fins. I think they would do better with danios and other small, fast schooling fish.
The middle left one is a T shape PVC pipe so they can go underground. They love it!

I only have 1 betta left, but he's a cool blue marble!

Yes, it is for a tank, and it holds about 27 gallons, but I round to 30.

I feed them Hikari algea wafers and bottom feeder pellets. I am going to add more things later, but for now I have three PVC pipes. Straight, elbow, and T shaped. The only problem with this tank is that large rubbermaid containers can bow out, but it isn't to hard to fix.
