Crayfish care guide

  1. UglyAsian
    The Mexican dwarf crayfish/crawdad/crawfish/etc is a small orange crayfish, with two species. The bigger one tops out at 2 inches. The recommended tank size is 5-10 gallons. They like a temperature of 68-77 °F (20-25 °C). They enjoy a PH of 6.5 to 8.0. They need a filter to keep good water quality and need a tight fitting lid as they are escape artists. They can live from 2 to 3 years. Mexican dwarf crayfish are omnivorous and eat vegetables, frozen foods, and sinking pellets. Breeding is relatively easy. All you need is a male and a female.
