Yeah. I think so too. I would love to have some but I only have one tank and its currently occupied by my baby betta. I don't think he'd appreciate being snapped at by a crayfish. CPOs are known to be as feisty as a betta and eat the occasional fish, snail or shrimp when housed with them.

Okay. Sounds like a plan. Just be aware that they aren't as cheap as, say, a comet goldfish, but not outrageously expensive like some rare and exotic fish. They usually run from between 10 and 20 dollars per individual crayfish, depending on where you get them from.

I considered one, but if it reaches a claw, it's gonna get pinched. Was told they don't do well with other fish.

Hmmm...how about a community tank. You could have a range of tetras, a pleco/shoal of cories and some gouramis. Also, angelfish are fairly popular in community tanks, but make sure you don't keep them with small tetras (e.g neon tetras) as they could eat them!

Never take life seriously. Nobody gets out alive anyway.

I could tell you what "not" to do..

A species specific white cloud mountain minnow tank. I did this, and no they don't eat their 40 babies

If I started over, I'd do mollies or sword tails and some cories with plants and flourite gravel .. yep, there's my 29 gallon plan :)

A dragon!! Jk, I dont even know where to get one

What about a big community tank? Lots of pretty colors. I wish I could get one, my mom put a fish cap on me or more bettas

Sometimes I wonder why the birds stay in the same place when they can go anywhere on Earth. Then ask myself the same thing.

If I ever have a free tank that size, I myself would do cories. Only because they're so darn cute x3

I seem to have a problem with collecting things with scales and fins. Oops

Ooh I love new tanks!
You could so some schools of tetras with some cory catfish! That would be a cool tank! :)
I would recommend neon tetras, black tetras and cardinal tetras.

Good Luck on your new tank!
