dwarf cajun crayfish - ID help needed
So my younger sister wanted crayfish with a planted tank, so we brought some dwarf cajun crayfish, because we were told that they are plant friendly. We asked both the breeder and the nice invert people here at tpt, and everyone agrees that they are plant friendly.
I ordered 2 pairs, but one of the females sadly DOA'd. And now we are left with 2 males and a female. I have been feeding them everyday, with a variety of food (BW color, spinach, frenzy, algae walfer, meat walfers, blanched zucchini), in the hopes that they would leave the plants alone.
But they have been destroying most of the plants i put in the tank. Including rotata colorata, hydro sp japan, banana plant, hornworts, purple cabomba, tiger hygro, ludwigia, peacock moss, and lace java fern. The picture below (2 days ago) is after they ate all of the lace java ferns and hornworts, lol. Most of the plants in that picture is gone now =< or... partially eaten..
Am i not placing the right type of plants with them? What kind of plants do you guys keep with them?
Anyone can suggest any non appetizing plants or super fast growing plants i can keep with them?
My little sister is coming home in about a month so i would like to have this ready for her.
Oh another question, i have 2 males and 1 female (because one female doa), would there be agression issues because of the 2 males? I have seem them steal food and nip each other but no real fights.
