I was at Petco about a month ago and spotted a Blue Lobster. There wasn't any information on the tank and none of the employees seemed to have any information on him. I just want to know some basic information such as how big they get, how big of a tank they need, what they eat, are they aggressive, etc. They looked interesting and if I ever set up a bigger tank I might want to consider one. Thanks!

well i don't know much about them but they will need to be in the tank by themselves as they will kill and eat any fish that swims by them.

Ah! Nevermind! Those bastard lobsters, making things difficult! Maybe we can move the fish into a bigger tank and toss the blue lobster into the 10 gallon when we're through, lol.

Well i think that they will eventually need a bigger tank than a 10g but you COULD MAYBE start them in a 10g but i am not sure.

Man, forget these Blue Lobsters. A little too high maintenance than what I'm looking for...

i had my blue lobster in my 55 gallon...until he started eating all the fish. he promptly got moved to a 10 gallon, but i will soon need to pick up and set up a 20 gallon for him as he could use some more leg room.

some are not very agressive and some are very agressive...it all depends on what kind of mood it has. i ended up with one that has agressive tendencies.

they are basically just a glorified blue crayfish so they will get upwards of 5 inches or so in length give or take.

i also was looking around and found a blue crayfish specific web forum that's worth checking out. www.bluecrayfish.com
