View Full Version : Crayfish is movin' again

SO my crayfish has decided on yet another home. He has destroyed the left hand side of my tank with his "House" under a peice of driftwood in my tank. Now he has decided that this isnt good enough and moved to the other side of my tank to buid his "Condo" and is in the process of excavating that. I have never met a more busy animal than this crayfish. Not only is he building his new condo, he also patrols where his other house is and literally picked up and threw a gold mystery snail out of his old "House" He then went over to the "Condo" and is pulling up all my plants and moving a piece of driftwood by PUSHING it. He is like Superman of crayfish LMAO!!! Hes funny and I love that he does this interesting stuff, but he makes my tank so darn messy. I have a hard enough time as it is keeping my tank neat looking and not overgrown. :hmm3grin2orange:

Amazing how busy some of these critters are. He's got to be more fun to watch than something that sleeps all day only to appear at night, tho. I don't care for invisible pets.

He is fun to watch because he isnt agressive with the other fish, and ive way more than once seen him pick up snails and toss them. I have a feeling thats how my mystery snails shell might have gotten broken. He can easily move Mopani wood and I dont even bother fixing his messes because the next day it will be even worse than before I fixed it LOL!!!
I dont like invisible pets myself. My peacock eel likes to hide a bunch and I always worry about him, and when im about ready to tear apart everything I see him moving around in the substrate.

Crayfish are aquatic bulldozers :)

Sounds like a fun and busy critter.

He's just being a crayfish. Sound like normal crayfish behavior.....

It might be normal behavior but I still think its funny :P
