    Hi.
    I'm new to this group.
    I got a hair about crawfish and have bought several big ones.
    By acciendent have breeded a few who have grown up and lost a few because while they tryed to molt, got ate.

    Mostly I need direction on tell with pictures how to tell a FEMALE.

    My fry all lived but a "pearling" one some how lost her eggs even though she
    had a nice self built hiding place.
    Should I use one of those glass dividers in the tank to seperate her from the
    others.

    Rod
    Glad to be here.and hope for some replies.

    Welcome to the forum!

    Crayfish will prey on each other, so it really isn't ideal to have more than 1 per 30 gallons. Obviously if you are okay with them eating each other that's not a problem.

    Females have what looks like a couple of craters - one on each side, inbetween the 2nd and 3rd set of legs. Or it's the 3rd and 4th. In either case, those little dimples are where the male inserts his parts. Males have a small extension on each side, again underneath between the 2nd and 3rd set of legs.
    125 - BGK, pictus cats, silver dollars, kissing gouramis, palmas bichir, delhezi bichir
    125 - Red severum, bolivian rams, Turquoise rainbows, irian red rainbows, loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, pearl gouramis
    90 - Congo tetras, african knife, elephant nose, spotted ctenopoma, upside down cats

    since my frist thread I found that I'm a proud father of at least 5 frys.
    Another one will peral shortly....(because I caught them at it RIGHT IN FRONT of the tank) They have NO shame.

    By the way.....why is there a "no spam face on my first thread and how do I get rid of it?

    XD Nope, no shame at all

    It's too late to edit your first post, so unfortunately you're stuck with the emote.

    The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of the act
