Orange color morph-Orconectes menae


Recommended Posts

So, I was recently collecting some crayfish during a fishing trip and came across an orange morph of this dwarf crayfish.

The mena crayfish has a unique "leopard pattern" on the back. Which looks great in the orange color.
It isn't the smallest dwarf, but it isn't huge.



I will try to get a better picture, but it is currently hanging out in my neocaridina tank. Hiding under a log and any attempt to get it out causes a lot of debris to kick up. I tried to collect some others for future breeding purposes, but many "escaped" and died on the floor.
I still have 2-3 non-orange remaining. Any recommendations on how to breed this trait into future offspring?
