The temperature dropped a bit last night so I got up to check on one of my tanks. It was about 2 am. On my way back to bed, I noticed this guy on the floor (picture below). Yes. Crawdad of some kind,... sitting on my living room floor,... all dusty & pissed off. I assume one of my cats caught it and brought it inside. No idea where he came from. I had a 3 gal tank with only plants and a few pond snails, so I dropped him in there.
Not really sure what to do. I suppose it would be cool to keep him, but I can also see the logic in returning him to the wild. 10 day Forecast is 70 day / 45 night. Not sure if that is ideal temp for him to be released. I have a 10 gal tank that I can set up (tank, heater, filter, deco - NO HOOD). I have sinking pellets for shrimp. I figured that was best food for the moment, so I dropped some in for him.
Thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions?
