Definitely a crayfish, not a lobster. Pet stores have a tendency to label crayfish as lobsters for some reason. I would guess it's some cherax sp., but I'm not very good at crayfish identification.

Looks like the one I just got. Can you keep crayfish in a planted community tank? I know you'll probably lose snails and slower bottom dwelling fish, but will they seek out other fish, or just defend their lair?

Yeah, I did some research and they like to destroy plants and eat everything they can get their claws on. I rehomed him to a 200g pond, where he will be much happier. At least he isn't stuck in a petco tank with no where to hide anymore.
