    I'm willing to give out any advice I can concerning crayfish. I am by no means an expert, but I will try to find an answer if I can.

    I'm a crayfish lover too, definitely nowhere near an expert.

    Is it normal for them to keep scratching themselves after a molt, my girl molted last week, she's molted lots of times in my care but this time she seems extra scratchy, particularly scratching the little swimmer legs under her tail. Is this normal?

    She is healthy, I add iodine to the tank and put calcium blocks in there. She's fed on 3 different types of crustacean pellets, lots of greens and other kinds of fish food. I sometimes give her betta pellets too.

    I have no clue sorry. But for her to scratch her self that means there is something irritating her. Maybe it's in the water maybe alil piece of the old she'll didn't come off when she molted.

    Or she might have something stuck to her, and just is having trouble removing it. If the scratching doesn't stop, it might be an issue with the water. There are a lot of things that it could be. Possibly just normal grooming, but keep an eye on her.
