View Full Version : Looking for Exotic Crayfish

09-08-2010, 05:19 PM
Hi all. I am brand spanking new to this site. I live in the U.S., and am in the process of setting up some large, new crayfish species tanks. I want to purchase several different kinds of exotic crayfish and was hoping that someone could give me some direction on where to buy them. I have looked all over the internet, and am familiar with watercritter.com, but have been unable to communicate with anyone there despite several attempts. Perhaps I am doing something wrong? (I had some questions before I buy.) I would like to find some very large Australian species if possible, redclaws for starters. Could someone please, please help me?

Have you checked the invertebrates section of aquabid.com?

I was going to suggest aquabid as well but it doesn't look like they have a ton of variety.

Thanks guys. I just checked out Aquabid, and that is definitely helpful. (it is trustworthy, right?) Their selection is ok, but do you have any other leads?

(it is trustworthy, right?)

Aquabid's just like ebay: sellers have feedback ratings that you can check out. So long as you're dealing with someone with a good record, you should get good results.

Have you checked liveaquaria either? Their selection of inverts does tend to be small, but I suppose worth a look. Also, the aquabid selection changes up almost every day. It might be worth contacting a few of the sellers who post listings of other types of crayfish and see if they have any ideas or contacts.

Edit - This forum also might be worth a gander: http://www.crayfishmates.com/crayfish_forum/

I know someone who breeds the electric blue P. alleni and her prices are very reasonable. If you're interested I'll PM you her info.

I am interested! Is this the "Blue Pearl" crayfish? I live in Missouri.
