View Full Version : Darn my impulsiveness

07-19-2012, 08:30 AM
I've been trying to figure out what to use as cleanup in my new predator tank with my bichir[soon to be more] and while at my LFS I saw some cool[and cheap] crayfish they were listed as Malaysian Cray and I ended up with 4 ranging from body size of 2.5"-7" for the low price of $11. Well I get home and can't find a damn thing [other than recipes] for them, I'm not even 50% sure what they really are[except big]. I would have a pic but after numerous attempts I can't get a good pic of one of them. The smallest 2 are almost clear and the biggest one is a dark redish brown with the 2nd biggest is inbetween.

Any help on resources to help me identify them would be appreciated

Try a search with this scientific name, Macrobrachium Rosenbergii.

yep thats them :19: now i know what to tell the LFS when I try to trade them towards an ornate bichir this weekend since they took out one of my other bichirs. I like them but since I'm wanting to move my 2 peacock eels over along with the albino bichir already in there, plus wanting a fire eel and rope fish I realized how i should of just put some of my larger plecos in there or gotton smaller feeder shrimp
