i used to have a crawfish in my 10G tank with my gold fish, he had his own cave covered in java moss, and 1 cube of blood worms everyday. he was sucha cute thing, mean as hell though. he pinched my black moore in the eye, and he is now blind cuz of that..(just in the one) i saw him molt a couple times, it was really cool.

but i remember one day, i came to the aquarium to find him GONE

i took out everything from the tank, only to find goldfish.

he couldent have climbed out, it would be imposible.

i have no idea where he went. has anyone else had mysterous dissapearences?

this happend a long time ago, but im just now remembering it. XD

he probably escaped, or moulted and was eaten by the goldfish before his skin hardened

you shouldn't keep a crayfish and goldfish in the same tank

yeah the goldfish probably tagged him while he was unprotected...

btw, your cray wasn't mean, they naturally try to catch fish

that too...but he was twice the size of the gold fish!?

it would be hard to belive that that gold fish ate something twice its size in one night leaving no evedence!?

amazing. i should respect that goldfish moore...lmao

thanks anyway :1:

they are like a little pork loin with legs until their shell hardens

i think fish can just take bites out of them

keep in mind that we have no idea what happened and are just making semi-educated guesses

personally i think he probably escaped

did you look all around on the floor and everything?

if he got out, he might die and rot..i would of smelled him lol
