I'm getting two Dwarf crayfish for my 10 gallon planted setup, I'm just planning ,it's not setup yet.
I'm planning on getting Blue Dwarf Cajun crayfish ,what ratio should I get?
2 females ,or 1 male ,and 1 female?
I don't plan on taking care of babies.

Honestly I find with the dwarf crayfish it’s hard to determine sex. I’d just get whatever seems best price and what you get is what you get.

Two females is going to be better, the males can be territorial specially after breeding (wants the female to move on, baby crays are just snacks if they do not have enough hiding places too small for adults to get into).
Sexing them is fairly easy, flip it over - the males will have an extra set of "legs" on the abdomen that look like a 'v' when folded against the abdomen, females will not have this extra set.

Make sure your tank is good and cycled because the dwarf crayfish are extremely sensitive to high ammonia, especially while molting.
