I've wanted these guys for a while. Sonicpath mentioned they dig up roots, but I can just give them they're own tank to mess up. Does anyone in NY have any experience with these guys? I might ask on the inverts forum, but I specifically want to know how they do with our water or what I'll have to do to NYC tap water for them. I'm also interested in what kind of setup they'll like and if anyone has had any success with spawning them. Last I checked people had them release larvae but hadn't had any success keeping the larvae alive.

You might want to contact MsJinkzd. She sells them and has a lot of experience with these guys, from what I gather. I guess they're pretty destructive little things, though, so you might not want to put them into your prized rare plant tank. ;-)
