I know we have a lot of shrimp people in the club but do we have any cray people? I’m really interested to see if anyone has done any of the non cambarellus/procambarellus genus? Cherax species look really cool to me and I know there are a lot of fancy varieties being developed in Asia. From the minimal research I have done on them it looks like they really need larger tanks to breed as they get rather large and are territorial.
So I’d love you hear about any luck people have had with crays.

I’ve honestly had terrible luck with crays. I caught 2 on a fishing trip, and they ate crushed (pond) snails that I fed them. They died though (In about 2 or 3 weeks), so I think i will stick with shrimp, at least for now.
