Hey guys, I recently bought six marbled crayfish to breed as feeders for my reds. Two of them are now holding eggs and I was wondering if any of you have any advice on what to do when the eggs hatch. Do I just let it be or do I need to remove the babies from the tank? They are currently in a 55 gallon tank along with some breeding cherry shrimp and breeding guppies. Thanks for any advice!

Other things in the tank might eat them. Mothers typically dont, but others might.

You will want a sand substrate or small gravel, and with temps around 80 they can grow to 3" in a few weeks.

Thanks! I was wondering about the temp. I just noticed you are from Montana. Where at?

I am in Texas for work... been here over a year. Born and raised in the western part of Montana near the Idaho border.

Very cool. I think that part of Montana is gorgeous. I have grandparents that I visit in Coeur d'Alene occasionally.

I miss it every day... lived and been all over the US and always have an urge to move back to that area. Hard to beat, even Coeur D'Alene is a great place.

West Texas is a flat desolate wasteland, doesnt even compare

Just a quick update, I am still waiting for the first batch of crayfish, but in the meantime all but one of the crayfish have berried up. So I have a total of 5 crayfish carrying who knows how many eggs! I hope my reds enjoy them otherwise I'll have enough fishing bait for years to come!
