    It is generally not recommended to introduce an animal kept in an aquarium to the wild, even if you originally got it from a natural body of water. While the species may be native to the area, there is a chance that disease organisms that contacted the animal while in captivity are also going to get released into the wild.

    Unless of course the pond you are talking about is something along the lines of a small private goldfish pond in a suburban neighborhood that is not connected to any wild water body and miles away from the outskirts of town.

    Since the damage already seems to have been done, why not just keep the crayfish for a few weeks longer until your parents need to go to town or something?

    The pond is just a rain water runoff pond thing but its stocked with plecos, and crays and I haven't had any diseases in my tank that my cray can get but I am worried that she will eat my betta since she now has a thirst for blood.

    You got some great advice already

    Is this the setup you are talking about here ?

    Do you have another aquarium or a QT tank you can put the crayfish in until you can take him to a LFS ?
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Yup that's the tank but I only have 7-9 mosquitosfish, no ottos and about 6 ghost shrimp and I can't set up any other tanks I am not even supposed to have one because I am in a rental and I may try to get my mom to take me to my LFS so I can also get more ghosts.

    You are talking about corys, right? I would not get more than 4 or so for a tank that size, but they do better in larger groups

    A 10 gallon is really not an ideal size tank to raise corys, in my opinion
