The infamous question has come up again and again with shrimp hobbyist that are looking to add a little more than just shrimp to their aquariums, "Can I keep Dwarf Crayfish with my shrimp?". In a shrimp tank size often matters, more than likely you have several plants and are picky about how the layout looks.

Dwarf Crayfish vs. Dwarf Shrimp:

The Mexican Dwarf Orange Crayfish is found to be beautiful, relatively peaceful, and low demanding. They do not dig into substrate very often, nor do they harm plants. The Mexican Dwarf Orange Crayfish will not harm your shrimp in most cases. If you have ever kept male betta fish you will know that each male has its own temperament, this is the same for dwarf crayfish.

In almost all cases I have found they get along 100% of the time with all dwarf shrimp, I often find he shrimp riding on the backs of the crayfish! Mexican Dwarf Orange Crayfish will only harm dead, weak, or sick shrimp. They are culling your Colony of shrimp for you. After reading this you might have this question, "Would you house the Mexican Dwarf Crayfish with your shrimp, prized shrimp?"

My answer would be yes! I would not sweat it, I would not even spend a moment laying awake at night thinking about it.
