View Full Version : is it ok to put plastic plants in my crayfish tank?

right now all i have in the tank is the gravel, a small flower pot that is half buried for the crayfish to use as a hiding place. so i was wondering if it was ok to put plastic plants in the tank to add some color and to make it look a little better? I know they can move the plants around but as of right now I'm not conserned about that because it's only about an inch long.

They should be fine. You may want to try live plants, some crayfish will munch on them apparently. If problems arise with either you can always take them out.

I have some small plastic plants in with mine. When they are about to molt they will move them to block your view. Funny!!!!

The plants will give them something to do.When I kept them they always had stuff to relocate.It kept them busy!
