sure looks like a marbled cray, give it about 6 months for it to grow enough to lay eggs
PS. if you invested $2.50 more, you could've gotten a marbled cray for sure instead of this maybe
Lol where? He only had another unidentified crayfish.

Awesome! That is small! A few questions

-what do you feed them?
-do they need any supplements? (calcium, iodine, etc)
-how do you house them? (together, with fish, any plants, etc)
-would my bigger one cannibalize?
-do you think they need a filter?
-last one, how do I know when they mature? (size? Maybe I would just wait for a berry lol)

Thanks!

- I feed them prepared foods and plant clippings. Mine will even eat java moss.
- Nope
- They eat plants so that's out. I haven't housed them with fish, nor do I intend to (they might kill them). They are OK with shrimp though.
- Only if they aren't well fed and they don't have hiding places during molts. I have different sized crays with each other with no problems.
- Yes they need a filter, however I've neglected my cray tank a few times and forgot to do water changes for almost two months and they still managed to breed.
- The smallest Ive had berry was about 1.5 inches. In fact I have a berried one that is about that size right now.

Thanks a ton! I appreciate you taking the time to answer! That means I should soon have a berry from my 123 aquarium one. She's around 1 inch, a molt should put her at the right size. I think I will cut up some straws and make a separate jar if I get little ones from you. Better safe than sorry! I will probably make a sponge filter somehow. I'll figure it out. thanks again!

what i did was get a pack of straws, then i cut them into thirds and used a rubber-band to hold them together. Makes a really nice hiding spot for babies onces they separate from their moms

BTW: I think Win has marbled crays for sale, you could compared yours to theirs to see if they're the same species

Awesome. The pack of straws acts as a bio ball too. Oh, that's what those cray's are lol. I never had an interest in crayfish, but I was looking at the bettas and felt bad for the crayfish, and it was only $2.
