Marbled Crayfish In 1 Gallon?

    I have a marbled crayfish in a big bowl right now with rocks and gravel. I am planning on getting a 1 gallon for her so she can have a filter, etc. Is 1 gallon tight? I am planning on the one with a divider so I can seperate her from her babies when she has them.

    1 gallon is pretty small. I'd recommend 10 gallons minimum. These guys can reproduce by themselves and you will soon become overrun.

    I plan on
    1. Giving away babies
    2. Feeding babies as live food to my fish.
    But will 1 gal be fine for just 1?

    I wouldn't keep them in a 1g long term, they get a decent size.

    I don't think 1 gallon is big enough, they defs need a bubbler and filter and at least a 5-10 gallon minimum. I had my neon red in a 5 gallon short term but she was not very happy and I moved her back to a 10 gallon after a week.
