    So how are you going to cook it? jk. i think he would do fine with your idea. Mine ate just about anything. He liked my sinking catfish sticks a lot. He will molt every once in a while so dont get freaked out when you see a crawfish skeleton. His shell will be very soft after he molts so make sure there is no super sharp objects in the tank. Also keep the molted shell in the tank after he molts. They usually eat it to gain more calcium to grow the new shell. 20% water changes every 2 weeks should be enough for on crawfish. They like vegetation, and room temperature should do fine. Filter doesnt have to be perfect either.
    Good luck

    A 5 gallon (completely filled) is WAY to small for any crayfish other than a dwarf crayfish. A 10 is the BARE minimum, 20 is much better. Also, there is no need to create a water free area for them - they are fully aquatic like lobsters.

    Oh a blue crawfish . yeah I would go with a 10g, you would more to work with in a 10g than a 5. If you can find a dwarf crawfish i would get it, they are awesome.
