    Re: Marble Crayfish- Marmorkrebs

    I had one of the adult females die on me. I assume she was molting and got stuck. I watched off and on for a while, figured she knew what she was doing.

    always allow room to grow, you can always cut it shorter, but cant cut it longer

    Re: Marble Crayfish- Marmorkrebs

    I don't know if it will work here or not. Just gonna say that upfront....but when we have a pair of fish that won't spawn, we introduce water from a tank we had some spawning in. The hormone signature in the water, even if a different kind of fish usually does the trick when all else fails. It's kinda my secret weapon to make problematic ones take the plunge. I have roughly 85% success with just this method. In fish, temperature, age, condition of breeders, diet, etc all play major rolls in breeding/spawing.
    I did keep the FL blue craws for a while, and I know I had to watch the softness of the water, and sometimes add iodine to help with molting. Not sure if that was just because of my water or what there. When you have extra, I would love to aquire some if you're willing.
    At first I left this blank...but now I believe: "It's better to keep your mouth closed, and have the world think your a fool, than open it and confirm it."

    Re: Marble Crayfish- Marmorkrebs

    I know this is an old thread, but...

    Anyone have any of these they would be willing to part with? I would love to try raising some.

    I love crayfish, especially the tails

    Gumbo?

    I have seen a lot of people raising these critters
    but I have yet to hear of anybody eating them.
    Who'll go first?
    Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you're a nice person
    is like expecting a bull not to charge you because you're a vegetarian.

    Re: Marble Crayfish- Marmorkrebs

    I am game. But I gotta get some first. I have tried the red/mud claws from LA, and I have done the prawns with success. But none of these yet.

    Re: Marble Crayfish- Marmorkrebs

    most crayfish in the states need lots of room, or they'll just canablize each other.. i have 2 left from last year out of 4 or 5 dozen, added at different times, but i'm sure the fish ate some of the small ones..
    if you try crayfish, use a large shallow container, and provide lots of "hides"

    Re: Marble Crayfish- Marmorkrebs

    PVC pipes and terra cotta pipes make great hides.
    I tried breeding the FL blue cray a few years back, and found I could get 5 gallon buckets of broken terra cotta from mom/pop nursery store for about $6/bucket.
