Marble Crayfish History

Marble Crayfish are said to have been discovered in an aquarium shop in Germany in the late 1990’s

Marble Crayfish Care

Unlike most aquarium fishes and shrimp, Marbled Crayfish are not picky about their water at all. They can be housed in extreme conditions and will be fine.

Marble Crayfish Diet

This aquarium freshwater crayfish is an Omnivore. They are decent algae eaters, and if sufficient algae is not present, foods intended for aquarium fish and invertebrates can be used to supplement their diet. Another great supplement is blanched (boiled until soft) vegetables.

Marble Crayfish Breeding

Marble Crayfish do not need a mate in order to breed. They are for lack of a better term "Self Cloning". Their offspring will be excat clones of their parents. They can even be grown in buckets!

Marble Crayfish Behavior

Marble Crayfish are non aggressive and cannot be housed with shrimp.

Special Notes

As with all aquatic invertebrates, it is important to make sure copper does not get into the aquarium. Copper is toxic to all Dwarf Shrimp. Many medications contain elevated levels of copper, so it is recommended not to medicate an aquarium containing Dwarf Shrimp.
