Orange Dwarf Crayfish

This peaceful dwarf crayfish hails from Mexico. Unlike most crayfish, Cambarellus patzcuarensis doesn't destroy plants, and digs very little. This omnivore eats live or frozen worms, insects, brine shrimp, flakes, pellets, cooked shrimp, green peas – most any kind of fish food. It is a colorful addition to aquarium. They live peacefully with small fish and usually do not attack even newborn guppies, although they may eat fish eggs or non-swimming larvae, and will eat dead fish. 

Important: Crayfish are great “escape artists”. They are able to survive in air for some time and are excellent climbers. An aquarium containing crabs or crayfish thus needs to be “escape-proof”.
