my crayfish has laid loadsa eggs - but she's the only crayfish in the tank. I'm just wondering if anyone knows if they fertilise their own eggs as i know other creatures do. I've searched and searched loads on the net and all i can find is how they mate and become pregnant. Not once have i read that they may lay eggs without a mate

That's interesting. I hope you get some answers. All I know about Crayfish is I had one for a day because my LFS said it would be fine in my community tank...and it ATE 2 of my NEONS! It went back to the store:wink2:
