This crayfish is a variant of the Louisiana wild red crayfish that has become very popular among hobbyists.  The wild red is very popular among many people who enjoy different seafood and in fact 90% of the crayfish eaten across the globe come from Louisiana. Crayfish are omnivorous so if you have live plants in your tank they are going to eat them. Most shrimp are fine to keep with these guys because they are fast and stay out of the way of the Electric Blue Crayfish. They enjoy logs to hide under, driftwood and rock shelters.  Most aquarists enjoy keeping only one in a tank unless it is fairly large and in an aquarium of 100cm x 40 cm you can even keep up to five of these crayfish. They tolerate many water conditions as long as you stay away from the extremes and keep the tank clean. These crayfish are so hardy they can even be bred in plastic buckets. They can be messy eaters so make sure to do regular water changes. 
If you want happy crayfish you’ll want to keep a steady supply of fresh plants for them to eat. In addition, they like algae wafers, sinking pellets, and excess fish food. They are great to have in your tank as part of the clean-up crew because they dine on left over fish food and algae. Make sure they have proper food otherwise they will spend time hunting your fish. A calcium supplement can also be recommended to keep their shells from growing deformed. These crayfish are easy to breed given the right conditions. Eggs are carried under the female’s tail and can be as many as 300 eggs and after 21 days of incubation the larvae are born. Females tend to have petite claws and the males have larger claws. In Mature males you will notice hooks on the ischia of the second and third pair of legs that are used for grasping the female during mating. The female’s posterior walking legs have a seminal receptacle on it. Most crayfish are nocturnal and this includes the Electric Blue Crayfish. They are shy during the day and prefer to hide under logs, caves or burrows. With tanks that have sand in the bottom you’ll notice they enjoy burrowing into the sand. Make sure to keep plenty of driftwood and other items in the tank for them to hide in and under during the day.Crayfish are very good at escaping so make sure to have a tight fitting lid on your tank. Additionally, they are so hardy that it is very important that you don’t release them into the wild as they can become invasive quickly.

  1. Lorenzo the Lobster 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Jan 2017

    Awesome addition to my 38 Gallon bowfront. He actually molted while I was acclimating him after he arrived. No problems at all and he looks great!


  2. absolutely love Fred and Wilma! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Dec 2016

    Love them! Unfortunately, Wilma was too smart and figured out the only way out of the tank and made it halfway across the room until she became lunch for my cat Coffee! It was horrific to find her in his mouth! On the upside Fred is doing wonderful, and since Wilmas Houdini escape, secured the enclosure! Fred won't be going anywhere!


  3. Lovely looking and lively Blue Lobsters 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Apr 2016

    I bought two lobsters June last year that came in excellent condition. On the day they came I was going to a function so I did not have much time anyway, I came home open the shipping container and release them from the bags, place them in bowls and acclimatize them during that time I observed them and they were very lively, the male was a bit feisty which loved as good sign on the first day, the female was nice. They both were given names that is so fitting for them. Now after 10 months they are doing really well.


  4. Fantastic looking Crayfish. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Mar 2016

    I received my Blue Crayfish last week and was very happy on the size and disposition. After giving her some time to acclimate she felt right at home with the other fish.
    After just one week it looks as if she has grown quite a bit.

  6. A great addition to my tank 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Oct 2015

    I was impressed with how well the crayfish was packed for shipment. The Electric Blue Crayfish is beautiful and very active. I love watching him chase his tank mates, which he will never catch, and eating the algae wafers.
