    hey guys trying to identify this crayfish

    it came to my LFS with there batch of goldfish so i got it for 20 cents :)

    its kind of hard to see the color in the pictures, when it was at the LFS it was almost see through, but as soon as he got home he turned a kind of tan color with speckles,

    the 2 lower pictures are when i just got him, notice the lack of color, and the upper ones are after he has been in the new tank a few hours

    any idea would be helpful

    and yes this means i began a fish in the tank cycle, i just couldnt let up a 20 cent crayfish, so i got prime to go with it and in he went, happily exploring his new home now, much better than sharing it with about 500 dead or ill goldfish

    It would have eaten itself to death :)
