cambarus diminutus vs cambarellus


Recommended Posts

If its diminitus they are the small dwarf blue crayfish. Very peaceful and you can keep lots in a tank together.....but beware they breed very quickly and easily and you can start off with 4 like me and end up with 100+  LOL.  Unlike other dwarf crays  CPO's for example which are extremely aggressive and territorial towards each other which mean you can only keep 2 to a 10 gallon tank.  Females will kill one another and often Males will kill females that are not willing to mate.


The Dimis as they are called are a better choice.  Some are more blue/grey than others, but my females were almost black in color, while the males were a lighter shade.  Hope this helps.
