C. Diminitus versus c. Texanus var. blue?

Recommended Posts

I’m starting to look into getting some dwarf crayfish at the start of the summer. Does anyone have an experience with both of these species and can they tell me the differences? I know c. Diminitus is known to be more docile than Mexican dwarf, but I don’t know anything about the c. Texanus

I am somewhat interested as well in the C. Texanus.
However, knowing how frequently they breed domestic crayfish together, I am not sure about the "C. Texanus".

As I have discovered with the genetics on shrimp, things get tricky.
The C. Texanus has a relative(C. Ninae, also about the same size) that is found very close to the home range of C. Texanus, but has generally lighter coloration.
I have also seen several people refer to them as "Mexican" still, which may imply that they crossed them with CPOs.

I am curious if anyone knows anything about the blue variety of C. Texanus. I have generally heard good things.
