ok id remove the caves. they grow fast and she may get stuck in a cave later. also i found my crayfish hides out too much. gets very antisocial LOL. just give him something he can sit under but not in it imo. its better.

for food, there's very good food for crustacians in pet shops. it brings out their colour and gives them what they need which is different than what fish need of course. now, my one LOVES some cooked unspiced chicken pieces.... she'd kill for a piece of chicken breast LOL.

when i got mine; TINY

and now! HUGE lobster lol

I have two female marbled crayfish (they self clone!) with eggs. There are no males in there species, only females. I am soon going to have a lot of babies, so if anyone wants some, i'm selling 'em. They are non aggressive, usually don't kill fish (but sometimes get nippy, so nothing that is slow with big fins) and can be communally housed. They actually care for their babies for a while too!

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

I'm hoping to get a pair for Ally but unfortunately I don't her type or as some would say "breed".

Looks pinchy! LOL

Don't put any fish in with your crayfish, or they will become crayfish dinner!

Well, if she's trying to escape that means she's good and health. Do your best to keep her in there - dehydrated pets are no fun!

I had a newt that escaped... couldn't find it... found it 10 years later in the cellar, when the new heating system was put in. It was very dehydrated...
