My blue crayfish

Got anything you want to show off?

My blue crayfish

Postby Dookie » 2008-03-08 16:32

I have two of these beauties, they came into work a little while ago. Naughty naughty imports, we ordered them as "blue lobsters", expecting the regular red claw variety to be delivered to us, and these came in instead. They are no longer available as they are illegal to import into the UK. I feel very lucky to have gotten my hands on two of them as they're utterly gorgeous, and rule the tank. I have a male and a female. :)

Hope they breed for you! I didn't realize that it was illegal for blue crayfish to be imported. That is rather a shame as they look like absolutely stunning creatures! Do you know what the reason for this it? Also what are the red-clawed species?

they ARE gorgeous dookie, how big are they? they dont look that big at the mo.

one question, if they did breed, would you be able to sell the fry? or is there nothing governing selling inside the uk ?

The red claw variety are described here http://www.practicalfishkeeping.co.uk/pfk/pages/show_article.php?article_id=432

They don't want the blues imported incase any get out into the wild and breed with other species (so I read on PFK). They're about 2 1/2 inches at the mo, they shouldn't get any bigger than 7-8" which is great because they won't outgrow my tank :) I'm not sure on what i'd be able to do with selling any babies, in reality there'd not likely be any survivors as they eat eachother unless you seperate them into loads of different tanks. Someone brought us hundreds of tiny baby red claw lobsters into work last year, we kept them in only 1 tank and out of all of them lot only 1 survived to reach 3". We didn't have the tank space to seperate them, which was a shame. I guess if they are to breed then anyone that wants them would need to take them straight away. Any takers? haha :D
