Thread: Cray compatiblity?

Howdy, I am setting up a 75 gal and would like to know what sort of tropical fish you could have with a Blue Knight Crayfish(Cherax destructor). So far I know that these guys are tropical and about their care, but I would like to know what fish are safe with this species.The only reason people get lost in thought is because it's unfamiliar territory.
One 75 gallon: Senegal Bichir, a Reed Fish, 1 Fire Eel and a Rio Negro Pleco
80 gallon: 2 female Hornet Cichlids and a Unknown Cichlid

Either the fish will be food,or the crayfish will become food eventually.The mexican orange is relatively community safe.

if i had a choice then i would do small live bearers, they can reproduce enough that you wont miss the ones that get eaten. although i think there are some fish that stay completely at the top, i think african butterfly fish are one.... but they are predators so idk if the cray would be safe.....KING OF THE GOLD BARBS RAWR!!!!
I wonder if i plant one of my tiger barbs would the demon seed grow to a full tree?
gotta love them bunnies!
I.R.S.: We've got what it takes to take what you've got!

I have a crayfish with snails, neon tetras and jumbo danios he ate two of the tetras and one of my plants so far. I'm surprised he hasn't got the snails yet, I've seen him try but so far unsuccessful.

Hatchetfish always remain at the top unless ill (then called food and it isn't pretty how a crayfish kills but that isn't the point, I guess. )
