Qty. 10 Australian Red Claw Crayfish 1.5-3"

The Red Claw crayfish is a new and very promising aquaculture species. The Red Claw is very similar to the native American species, except that it grows to a HUGE size, almost to that of a lobster! This is a species with considerable potential for commercial culture. The features that made it suitable for aquaculture and the aquarium are its ability to withstand low oxygen levels and warm water associated with the tropics.

The ideal tank environment consist of about 5 inches of aquarium sand or gravel on the bottom with pipes, tunnels, decorative rocks and caves. You can plant hardy plants in the aquarium, but small, weaker plants won't survive. You will want to make sure the aquarium has a filter to keep the aquarium clean combined with periodic partial water changes. Use test strips to monitor the pH levels which should be between 6.5 to 8. When cleaning the tank, test pH before and after changing the water to ensure levels remain within proper range. Use an aquarium heater and thermometer to measure the water temperature and maintain the aquarium between 77 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit. Temperatures below 55 or above 95 will result in casualties. Test the hardness, as well; they need hard water to thrive. You can add limestone to make the water harder, if necessary.
