I have a 20 gallon planted tank that has nothing but TONS of plants... The plants are a must... will a blue lobster eat plants?

One crayfish I had even decided to munch down on some plastic plants.

My crayfish has only slid my plants over if he can't move around them well. He has so far only moved them a little close together so he can try to catch one of the guppies in the tank. (Which is what they are there for...lol)

I've seen my crayfish nibbling on my sword plant. I've also even seen him dig up a root and take a nibble! And yes, they definitely like to dig around the roots! I find that if I give him lots of hiding places he'll stay away from the plant though. I think he mainly digs at the roots in attempts to make a hiding place! lol Good luck!

Mine dug up my plants so I put them in another tank. They dig the roots up and nibble on them.
