|fermentedhiker||Not to hijack your thread, but has anyone kept CPO's in community tanks say with Peacock Gudgeons, Australian desert gobies, Anomalochromis Thomasi or similar fish?|

|Rexthecrayfish||Thanks guys. I don't think I'll be getting any because i love my dwarf cories and I don't want them to get hurt. Plus I already have 2 crays in my 10 gal community so I think Ill just keep this tank as it is.|

|ravensgate||I think my ratio at my best guess are 2 females and 3 males in a 10 gallon. The females are waayyy bigger than my males. I've only had them about 6 weeks or so so still learning.|

|mordalphus||Mine are fine with cherries.... It's usually the other cray you have to worry about. It's the females in this species you need to worry about, and they are big and mean. Usually if you have more than one female in anything smaller than 20 gallons, you won't have more than one for long|

|ravensgate||I'm about to clear out a whole colony of cherries in the next few weeks and any that don't make it to the net will be going in with the CPOs. So I can report back in a few weeks if any stragglers are still around|

I've had crays with neos before and it was fine. There was no chance that any of those crays were gonna catch a neo. No chance.
Fish on the otherhand are a different story, especially if the fish rest on the gravel at nights or have dangling fins that can get caught by a cray claw.

|ravensgate||I've read some folks keep them with shrimp. I personally don't think I would (and I've got shrimps and CPOs...all in their own tanks though). And they can shred a fish's fins when they go to the bottom to sleep (or bottom feeders).|

|Blue Falcon||I have heard that in a heavily planted tank it can work but thats a pretty small tank. Sometimes you get an aggressive male that will go after the shrimp.|

Orange CPO cray and cherries?
Hey everyone im thinking about getting a Cambarellus Patzcuarensis and I'm wondering if he'd be alright in a 5.5gal heavy planted? I currently havr RCS, 2 Corydoras hasbrosus, and an oto. Do you think he would hurt any of these guys?
