How much do you know about fish keeping in general? Is this your first aquatic pet ?Piggycocoa said:Me and my mom will lean about the nitrogen cycle
Yeah alot of questions need to be answered to offer help too. When are they arriving, are they babies, what is the species, are they wild caught ? EtcStarGirl15 said:This is my biggest question. Why so many?
We still really need to know the species in order to give more detailed advice. It would also be important to pass on the advice to any friends who may want them once you have the initial situation sorted out.Piggycocoa said:a lot of my friends want them
So are you taking in the ones from school or are you ordering new ones? If you are ordering, I do not believe that quantity to be the best option for what you are prepared to handle. Crayfish don’t usually like other crayfish. Also, the listing would likely have the species name.Piggycocoa said:They are coming on eBay
So how long will you be housing them for before giving them to your friends? How many are you keeping and where do you plan to house the ones you are keeping ?Piggycocoa said:No babys. And I have some experience for like 3 year. I never have had any pumps or filter. I got them at my school and they where supposed to live for 3 months but lived for a year.
And the most I have had is 15

If you haven't purchased them yet I would hold off. You mentioned 15 would be going to tupperware containers, so does that mean you were planning to put 10 in an aquarium ?Piggycocoa said:Do you think I should get less crayfish?
yeah, you should get fewer crayfish. if your friends want their own, they should set up tanks and when those tanks are ready for crayfish, then they can each get one themselves.Piggycocoa said:Do you think I should get less crayfish?
No they will not be able to reach the spinach, unless the water is very shallow. I had zero luck with feeding my cray veggies.Piggycocoa said:Me and my dad are at are cabin and we Caught 20 crayfish and there are some babies and some adults. i try to feed them spinach and it floats. will the crayfish get to the spinach and I have very small Minnows in are lake should I feed them that? What should I feed the babies? Thank you guys so much.
Piggycocoa said:is there any wood up north that has wood I can have for crayfish or places to buy none expensive wood and I live in Saint Paul and up north in Crosby. Thx! Stay Healthy
You could, but probably would be better not to. If you can source the wood from the cray's home it might be better.jkkgron2 said:I wouldn’t, you would be better off just buying some online or at a pet store. Are these the crayfish being kept in bins?
