On June 21st I finally received my trio of CPOs which turned out to be 2 males and a female, Tang, Tigger, and Clemetine. Tigger and Clementine went at it in the acclimation bucket so the start of my long awaited crayfish breeding begins. Tang is being kept in a 3rd tank for the time being, with the idea of a 2.5 being set up just for him not out of the question yet. Considering I already have my crays, and 2 of them have already mated I have a few questions. 1. Is it same to move the "berried" female? How about once the eggs hatched and the juvies are on her swimerettes? 2. Will the adults prey on the young crayfish? I plan on selling/trading the baby crays and Clementine and Tigger are currently being housed in my nice 5G planted nano display tank. I do want to keep my "original" crays and I'm not overly keen on having to dig through the carpetting plants to siphon all the crays, especially since I ave a very light-weight substrate (Fluval Stratum). A second option I've come up with, is having Tigger and Tang share the planted 5G, and have Clementine live in the 4G grow-out tote (option 2B)t I still see having her live there as a problem as I'd have to move one of the males into the tank every so often to mate with her. It does have the added benefit of I can time my spawns. In the very near future, a grow-out tote is being put together. My current "options" are either a large grow-out for both the german ram fry and the crayfish juvies, or one each. So either; 1A) 1 x 25 gallon tote 32 x 19 x 13 2B) 1x 15 gallon tote 26 x 12 x 16 (rams) and 1x 5 gallon tote 14 x 11 x 6 (crayfish) It all comes down to, which is better; moving my mated female after every mating, or moving my male to mate with my female. For this first spawn, I might actually end up leaving the female in the tank, and seeing just how small the babies are and how long they take to be at a size where pulling them is viable. this is my first attempt, and I want to document it for future reference for yself and others. Just as a disclaimer, the rams will finish their grow-out in a 75G, the 15 is just for when their tiny and lunch sized.
