Can Someone Give Me A Direct Answer On What To Feed?

Can someone tell me directly what to feed my new crayfish and german blue ram? They're both picky eaters and I don't want to get a bunch of food and just hope that they like it. (2 separate tanks and probably 2 separate foods.) What do you feed your GBRs and crayfish?

Thanks!

Crayfish, in my experience, are some of the lease picky eaters I've ever had. They've eaten everything from veggies to fish food to the snails in my tanks.

GBRs will greatly prefer frozen or live foods such as brine shrimp, mosquito larvae, and bloodworms. Adding garlic extract to foods makes it more enticing for picky eaters.

My GBRs eat flake, but I also feed them frozen blood worms, as a treat, and frozen brine shrimp. I have some Daphnia coming tomorrow also. Unfortunately, I can't help.with crayfish, but would suspect bottom feeder food. A mix of algae wafers and shrimp pellets, but honestly can't say. Sorry.

I feed my crayfish algae wafers, slices of veggies, and occasionally fish. Can't help with the GBR part. You can probably find easy make recipes for gel food that would suit both of them.

Keep an eye on your cray and your ram, or you might end up with just a cray. They are not scavengers, they are active nocturnal predators.

gourami_guy7 is it a dwarf crayfish or not?

I have never heard of a cray being a picky eater. Mine eats everything. Even tries to eat the fake plants! I imagine your cray will make food out of the GBR soon...

I feed my Crayfish algae wafers and shrimp pellets. Occasionally I will give him omega one frozen community blend. I also see him eating flakes, brine shrimp and bloodworms. My GBR’s were picky at first. They always ate frozen brine. They also love fluval bug bites. Eventually they started eating flake foods as well.

No it isn't a dwarf.

Then you will probably see everything from your plants to your fish become snacks for your crayfish, as they are pretty indiscriminate when it comes to food.
