Thread: New crayfish aquarium
New crayfish aquarium
Hi everyone, I'm setting up a 20g aquarium for crayfish. I want to know what kind of plant I can put and if u can post some pictures. Have 5 small less than an inch crayfish. I'm using eheim liberty 200 for filtration. Here's some photos of my tank and some of my marbled Crayfish:

Those pics are a bit big to see it properly (and one is upside down).
From what I can tell your set up looks a little clinical. Is it a temporary tank?

If you were to resize your pics to 800 X 800 pixels in size, we would be able to view them better
The below link explains how to do that. It's pretty easy

Crayfish eat live plants... I'm not sure what you could put in there that wouldn't become dinner. I've heard that java fern has a bitter taste so fish tend to leave it alone... don't know if that would stop a cray or not.
your pvc hotel looks good, by the way.

Hi everyone, the tank is maybe for 2 when they grow up and the only thing that is missing are a lot of plant. The cray are less than an inch so right now there is a lot of space and a lot of hiding for 5 of them. For plant I want any that can be eat and not. here is a new photo: that plant in there don't know the name because was a gift.

Did you cycle this tank?When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.
Yes I cycle it, and to be sure I use the eheim liberty that was using in other tank. I can't or don't know how to resize the pictures because I use a smartphone to post, don't have a computer.

Is that a lone neon?
Yes it was a lonely neon. When I wake up
she was floating and dead. The others look
fine and are very active. I think it was the
change of tank or maybe she was sick.
Was thinking going to Petsmart but maybe not.
