So here is a tough question: Is it possible for crayfish to inbreed? While they are not terribly complex creatures, they have DNA, of course, and it seems like breeding crayfish of the same parents would lead to some sort of mutation. Anyone out there familiar with this?

thanks!

I think it will take quite a lot of inbreeding to worry about that. In the wild, no one is watchign over them watching their genetic lines. While they might get genetically weaker if you continually inbred them, I wouldnt worry about it.
