:sebastian: :sebastian: :sebastian: :sebastian: I found some crayfish in a river and put them in my freshwater fish tank. All i know is that they are babies. I don't know what kind or really anything but i was wondering if they would do well with my other fish.
P.S. my fish are community fish!

Welcome to the Fabulous AC!:22:
You will need to use the force to watch they do not kill and eat your fish.:hmm3grin2orange:
They will catch and eat the slower and sick fish.They will also do a great job cleaning the tank.

Hello and welcome!!!!

They will probably try to grab the fish as they swim by, and it could get pretty nasty between them and any bottom feeders you may have.

Do you have any pics????

My son brought some home a few years back. They will eat any fish they can catch. I believe we gave them shrimp pellets also. They were pretty cool to watch, I think he started with 5. As they grew they would fight quite a bit and we ended up with two 5" crayfish in a 20gal.
