    a few days ago my two cray's got into it again only this time one killed the other ate parts of him and so did the ghost shrimp. and a few days before that one of my crays ate a Black myst. Snail and now he doesn't really eat. I "Target" feed him first so he doesn't attack the columbian sharks he's in with. Its gone so far that he lets the sharks take food from him...whats going on?

    My crayfish usually doesn't eat for 2-3 days before he molts. I'm not sure if that's normal or not, but he's been pretty consistent about it the last 3 molts. Is he hiding more than before? When was his last molt?

    It also could be that he's just full :). I sometimes put a few minnows in the crayfish tank as a treat and I usually don't need to feed again for a day or so.

    actually yeah he molted today, its not normal behavior for it. Ive had it since he was 4 weeks old(my LFS breeds them) and this is the 5th time hes molted.

    Totally normal for when they molt. Don't worry.
