    All crayfish tend to be somewhat aggressive. I have owned 3 blue lobsters a the same time over about a 3 year span. One kicked the bucket unexpectedly during what seemed to be a molting gone wrong. The other 2 were best friends for about 2 years before they turned on each other one night. With one sole survivor, I hang out to hope because everyone loves a "blue lobster".

    Regardless of the species of cray, they all seem to have a territorial temperament at one time or another.

    Of course the tiny little claws on the dwarf version wont be nearly as powerful =P

    That's not necessarily the case with the dwarf varieties. I had 6 of the self-cloning variety for a few months. The only time I had a problem was with a very aggressive water change. I took out 80-90% of the water and that put all the living creatures in my tank in close quarters. I don't think the crays liked the fish being in their faces, so they trimmed some fishey fins. The fish came out okay, but I never did that much of a water change all at once again.

    Aside from that, the only problem they created was constant uprooting or trimming of plants. That is what got them re-homed.
