    Currently I have 10G aquarium with a 2.5 inch Vanilla Crawfish and a Dwarf Gourami. Any good tankmates? Btw the DG and Crawfish get along fine! ImageUploadedByFish Lore Aquarium Fish Forum1407466441.286931.jpg

    I don't really know anything about crayfish so I don't know what are some good tank mates with them. But my guess you can probably add 2 guppies or platies. You can't really add anything Big because there's nothing much that can fit. Maybe endlers or something small.

    Unfortunately crawfish are better kept by themselves. They will harass just about any fish and nip at their fins especially if they catch the fish at night sleeping. What kind of crayfish is it? I have never heard of a "white" crayfish.

    Dolfan when I got it from the lfs it was named as a "Vanilla Lobster" if that helps at all. Also thanks for the advice Brandon!

    I have a 20 long with one red claw crayfish, she was tiny before her last two molts. I was recommended zebra danios as a tank mate. Even at her tiny size she managed to get one and zebra danios are very small active fish, crayfish are slow and not that smart in my opinion xD It must have been like us snatching a blue bottle fly out the air.

    I wouldn't risk it, I got rid of my fish as soon as she killed the first one, it's just risky and unfair on the fish.

    I know it's hard watching the tank looking bare while they crayfish hides, that's why I ended up with fish. Big mistake though.

    Thanks Sayba! I am actually looking for a larger tank (25+ long if anyone has one for sale) and if and when I get that tank I am going to put in lots of hiding spaces so it does not feel as stressed.
