crayfish question

Would it be safe to put 1 dwarf blue crayfish with neon tetras and honey gouramis in a planted 29 gallon tank?

Re: crayfish question

The cray will go fishing, especially at night. If you're ok with some fish going missing occasionally, you're good to go.

ClearForLife 10G Acrylic, 4 HET rasboras, ~80 RCS, various snails. Ludwigia repens, various moss. Eheim 2211 Canister, 50W heater, Finnex FugeRay Planted+ 17W LED.

Re: crayfish question

dwarf crayfish don’t usually limit your options like normal sized crayfish do – they are usually pretty peaceful and usually won’t kill fish unless they’re weak or very tiny like fry, or have long flowy fins like bettaautolinker.com autolinking image. Small snails, baby shrimp and bamboo shrimp could be targeted by dwarf crayfish, but besides that, they’re usually pretty harmless.

Re: crayfish question

I don't know about the dwarfs, but my Blue Crays like to eat all the plants in my tank. Only thing I have been able to keep more than 24 hours so far has been some water lettuce, and my guess is that it's because it is at the top, suction cupped to the side. I know they ate some of the roots when it went under water from the HOB...

Re: crayfish question

Well I won't be having any long finned fish, and I do not plan to have any sick fish( but you never know) I think I will get the dwarf blue crayfish. Thanks for your input everyone .
