The Pure White Crayfish is native to the southern United States and are a variant of the Louisiana wild red crayfish. The state of Louisiana produces nearly 90% of the crayfish that are eaten in the entire world. They are now kept and farmed for food in many states as well. If kept in cramped quarters they can become aggressive toward each other and even cannibalistic. Most will tell you to only keep one or two unless you have a tank that is 40cm x 100 cm or larger if you want as many as five crayfish. The Pure White Crayfish are very hardy and can even deal with water that is brackish, several ranges in PH and temperatures, as long as it’s not extreme changes. It has even been stated that they will breed in buckets. They are an omnivorous crayfish and will dine on dead fish, slow moving fish and plants. They will also eat dead plant material, algae and excess food. Be sure to feed algae wafers, flakes and sinking pellets so that they are satisfied and not going after your fish all the time. Many hobbyists will also recommend calcium supplements so their shells stay strong. Males have large claws and the females have petite claws. Mature males have hooks for grasping that are located on the ischia of the second and third pair of legs. These are used for grasping females during copulation. Females have seminal receptacles located on their posterior walking legs. When they are berried, the eggs are carried here (which can be as many as 300) until the larvae are hatched 21 days later. Crayfish, including the Pure White Crayfish are nocturnal and tend to be quiet during the day. You should make sure to have several hiding places for them such as logs, rocks and other shelters. If they are in a crowded tank they can start eating each other. They will molt a few times a year and most often will eat their cast off shells, salvaging the calcium from them. It’s very important to remember that Pure White Crayfish can be very invasive. This means you shouldn’t even release just one into the wild. In addition you should remember that these crayfish are escape artists and can even crawl up the filter and on out. Be sure to have a tight fitting lid on your tank so they stay in where they belong.

  1. Love his activity! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Nov 2020

    he/or she is SO COOL, he climbs on stuff and launches himself off of it freefalling through the water, its so funny to watch. He's probably trying to find a way to escape but to no avail, yet! He hasn't caught any of my fish yet either. I have a neon tetra and and elephant ear female betta and a neon yellow female betta and two danios.

  2. he's a killer 2 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Jul 2020

    He's a killer. Put him with a Betta, nothing else. Made quick work of the Betta. Seriously doubt he's a sub adult.
    Oh well. He's on his own until he kicks.

    Elite inverts : We would not recommend putting any crayfish that's not of the dwarf variety in with a betta, or any other small fish. A crayfish has claws for a reason. Glad he came in alive and healthy. Sorry he killed your fish.

  3. Healthy and Happy 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Apr 2020

    We received our White Crayfish within three days after placing the order. He was packaged very well and appears to be very healthy and happy in his new home! We have had him a little over a week now and has already molted and is growing rapidly!

  6. Beautiful specimen 5 Star Review

    Healthy crayfish, delivered as promised.

  7. All I've ever wanted. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Aug 2012

    Shipped extremely quick and great communication.

    The only reason I got into the aquarium hobby was to own a crayfish. They were having problems a few months back when I first purchased my tank. However, It seems as though things have been resolved.

    My crayfish arrived happy and healthy in an extremely well packed box.

    I will be purchasing all my inverts from here from now on.

  8. Awesome little crayfish. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Jul 2012

    Arrived on time and well, went into my tank and quickly started looking around and running to the shrimp pellets I put in the tank.

    She is very beautiful, and lively walking around the tank during the day and at night much more active than other crayfish I've had.

    My only slight complaint is that there was no indication of it's sex. I had to figure it out on my own. Other than that it was perfect.

    Although smaller than i expected, he adapted well very quickly. he arrived quick and lively and started cleaning and hunting for food immediately.
