Re: Crayfish fighting or breeding?

As of now, I’d have to say it is about 1/4 inch. Any idea how fast it will grow?

Re: Crayfish fighting or breeding?

Update: Whelp, after moving around some rocks looking for the disappeared lobster, it turns out she did, indeed, breed and now has eggs. If those eggs will hatch is beyond me. I feel bad for the father, who was moved to a different tank where he unfortunately was devoured :? . But, I will definitely...

Re: Crayfish fighting or breeding?

Thanks! The problem about identifying the “swamp crayfish” is that it was a feeder lobster from petco, so is difficult to truly identify. For all I know it could be wild caught or cross-bred between masses of different species. Or it is a swamp crayfish, just not bred for color. I’d also assume it’s...

Re: Crayfish fighting or breeding?

Oh, sorry about the confusion. I only really know the basics for crayfish, so you’d probably be able to tell better. I couldn’t quite get a picture of their undersides but I hope these help in their identification. B22EE7CD-8510-46CC-87D4-B6F280F786BA.jpeg CB13A11C-C51A-42A1-A0B3-AD1493CC5A6B.jpeg T...

Re: Crayfish fighting or breeding?

Thanks for the helpful information! I think based on the pictures that they were trying to mate, and although I assumed this, I didn’t want to risk anything at the time. Though I’m keeping them separate, at least I know I can put them back together at some point, in the event that the cichlids try t...

Re: Crayfish fighting or breeding?

I’m not 100% sure, but it looks like the swamp crayfish is male and the cobalt is female. Just for safety I ended up moving the swamp crayfish into my SA/CA Cichlid tank (to avoid a dead crayfish or a hundred babies). They haven’t eaten him yet, hopefully they won’t (they’re all still juveniles).

Crayfish fighting or breeding?

Hi, I’ve run into a problem with my crayfish. I’ve had this cobalt blue lobster for quite some time, and decided today to purchase a red swamp crayfish. I knew that they could potentially fight, but they are being kept in a 60g tank with plenty of caves, rocks, and hiding spots. However, when the ne...

A lizard piggy-back ride!!

I was feeding my lizards crickets when my green anole, Randall, jumped onto my completely careless and oblivious giant day gecko, Oz. He looked like a little Yoda!! :lol: FD3CCDAD-8ED4-4640-97C0-44B7C33F7193.jpeg 43F9ED2A-FE70-4CC5-8049-57799BF61C21.jpeg A0420D5E-69F1-4F4B-8D25-621445B1C1B4.jpeg “Mm...

Re: My Green Terror Lost An Eye

I’m not too sure yet. I don’t have space for a bigger tank, but I do have a 60 gallon semi-aggressive tank that I can move the severum into if space becomes an issue.

Re: My Green Terror Lost An Eye

Update: everything’s doing great! The terror is now swimming around normally, and his eye socket has filled out with flesh. The melafix treatment is working. As far as overstocking goes, I knew it could be a problem before I put in the severum and parrot, but made sure to get females (seeings they g...

Re: Leopard frog tankmates?

Oh, ok. Wasn’t sure if it had particular dimensions.
I’ll look further into what I can get for the frog. What I was looking at was 30 x 12 x 12, which came with everything required, but if that’s too crammed for the frog then I’ll look at something else. Thanks!

Re: GSP Tiny White Spots? Ick?

I tried to soak it in the bloodworms, which then spread into the tank water because I used too much.
