Thanks buddy Very Happy

They eat often, but now I am limiting her food intake. It used to cost me maybe 5 bucks every 2 weeks and about 10 bucks a month for the plants, but I am using shrimp pellets and algae wafers more often now, which lasts for a very long time. The live plants that I feed it are just treats I like to give it Smile

Thats a more acceptable upkeep cost with the shrimp pellets and algae wafers bro. That beast is like a monster eating machine! lolz

Every though of breeding them? I'm curious on how the mating will be like for crayfish.. haha

lol yeah, it's a monster when it comes to food. I can't wait for it to molt again and get even larger. Nope, I've never thought of any breeding because these are solitary crayfish and don't do well together. If I breed and get babies, I'd have to set up individual fish tanks lol. The breeding is similar to scorpions in that if the females don't like the males, they will eat them or fight. All you have to do is drop in a male and let them get their thing on Smile

Here's a treat for everyone. My crayfish just molted today and I believe it's her 5th molt. Caution: extremely pic heavy!

I'd like to start with a couple of pics the day before when I noticed signs of premolt as the carapace was moving away from the abdomen.



You can see the white showing:



I awoke the next morning finding this, her shed:



I was very pleased because she seems to get even more beautiful by the molt as her look matures.



Awesome shot:





















Old exo:



Her color is a little strange right now, but she will probably turn back to her usual color or something like it. She will also eat her old exo in the days to come--kind of creepy when you think about it lol
