We need some eyes here. Do you have a water test kit? Hey 75 gallon Discus Tank Thunder_o_b Mary765 could y’all look at this crayfish for me? Sounds like it’s in terrible trouble. Thanks.

Oh jeez. I'd do a water test if you can? The water looks a little cloudy...
Has he molted since you got him? Is he lethargic, or just walking oddly? When was the last time you saw him eat?

What do you use for calcium?

What are the parameters?
Do you use calcium?

Temp?

What are you feeding him?


In the second pic, the legs look a little weird.

In my experience my boy goes that teddy color shortly before molting. It might’ve been a bad previous molt and he’s preparing to molt again.if your tank is well cycled I’d also recommend lowering the volume for water changes. Inverts are very susceptible to change in water parameters so he might also be stressed from that.

Does he have any caves to hide in? And do you supplement calcium?
