Sorry about the post title! It was going to say I want more crayfish.

Jeez those are a doozy! With their size and the propensity for males to fight one another I'd recommend like at least a 75 gallon tank if there are 3 of them and they are 6 in and growing!
I know what you mean though my electric blue lobster is awesome watch especially when he comes out of his hole and spreads his arms like king kong.
Also on the second one, I'm pretty sure that captive bred crayfish will kill your fish also. I have one and he kills feeders on the regular.

This videos really messed up to watch because he is destroying beautiful fish, but it shows how aggressive a large crayfish can be. Fast forward to number one, its about 3:15 into the vid.

I know that they will eat fish if there are any in the tank thats why if I got one it would have its own tank.
I'm in a fish club and theres a meeting coming up so I'll see if anyone brings a crayfish for the auction.
What size tank would I need for just one???
