Crayfish Tank - Finally! I Have Been Waiting For This For So Long!

    Hi! So as some of you know I have a marbled crayfish that had been slowly deteriorating in health. He hasen´t been moving, eating much, or really doing anything but sitting in his cave. I had a similar problem with my african cichlids a while ago and I got them to be more active and eat more by forcing them to come out (By not providing as many hides), so last night I tried doing this for my crayfish. I re-scaped the tank to look like a river bottom but didn´t provide a diberate cave. I did however provide rocks and stuff for him to crawl on. Anyway this morning he was moving around, cleaning, and eating like a crayfish should. I am so happy he is doing better. And my succses with seeing him do well has encouraged me to set up more crayfish tanks. So when I get home I am going to be setting up some spare tanks for a electric blue crayfish and a white crayfish. I will post pics of my current crayfish´s new tank and the tanks I am setting up for more crayfish :)

    Let me know what you think :).

    By white crayfish, do you mean the ghost type? I dream of keeping those!

    Current crayfish setup:   

    The larger of the two new crayfish setups:  

    The smaller new crayfish setup (the tank is cracked near the top which is why it isn’t totally full): 

    The crayfish section of my fishroom: 

    Hope this works. The two tanks that are sitting sideways are the new ones that don’t have crayfish yet. Only the tank all the way to the right has a crayfish. (Also the tank with the crayfish is having its filter cleaned right now).
