dougolasjr Well I have a better top on the tank now so hopefully it won't.

theshadybird yeah, should that ever happen again, don't put them straight back in the deep end. Best to do is put them in a shallow dish with water just barely covering the cray, with a spot for them to crawl out of the water if it's too much for them.
Sorry about your loss though Crays are so curious, it gets them into trouble a lot!

dougolasjr Yes that's what I did... . I guess I should have googled it before rushing to put her back into the water.

theshadybird Did you just dump her back in the tank? I know that when they dry out, their gills don't work very well, so a lot of the times they will drown when returned to deep water.

dougolasjr It was from drying out.

Mind you the tank is about 6 feet off the ground at the top. Unfortunately she could not be saved she looked like she tried to come back but eventually died. Heed my tale of the wandering cray.
Did she die from drying out? Or was her shell all busted up from that 6-feet fall? Though I doubt the latter as she walked all the way over to your bedroom.
