I will be adding a blue lobster to my tank this weekend, I feel I have done enough research but doesn't hurt if anyone has 1st hand experience and can offer any tips?
Croeso welcome to fishlore joy
We don't know what research you've done but probably covered most things, acclimate like you do fish, clean water is a must for crayfish they also need hiding places for security and moulting, it may be good if you come back with what your not sure with however trivial and z photo of your tank
This is the picture of the little guy doubt it will help I'm picking it up Friday ... Lady in the store advised it was a filter feederCan you clarify Blue lobster as there are blue lobster/crayfish that are not filter feeders
Thank you we always have kale in abundance that's what we feed the bunnies!! I am really looking to adding this into my tank. Thanks for the advice, much appreciatedSorry she don't know what she's talking about its a crayfish , filter feeders don't have claws. Nevertheless you won't bd disappointed these guys are great, the two front claws you can see are used to hold and RIP their food apart, get some small algae wafers and also feed cooked broccoli, spinach, kale, but make sure the kale and broccolI are fully cooked this will give him the calcium needed to condition his shell for moulting, feed every day in small amounts, you can put some cheap plants in if you like fof him to dig up and rip apart then eat. That tank is ideal
I'm struggling to know for sure ... she seems happy strolling around the tank like it owns the place there is a piece of kale wedge down which it seems to have picked at but will check again in the morningIs she feeding
I have now created a feeding tube out of a 2litre lemonade bottle to make sure its getting food ... the Mollies were stealing any food and trying to judge where the pellets were gonna lads is a science in its self. Cray has been visibly feeding a lot better and seems to be thriving. The things we do for our passion!!!Is she feeding
