Title: Red Claws in a kiddie pool
Post by: Mr T Rides BMX on March 13, 2009, 06:27:04 AM
hey fellas, well my 1200gal kiddie pool seems to be slowly losing its population of grandpas excess guppies thanks to the resident snake head gudgeon  :) he's soon going to be placed back in the 120 after we move house, so i was thinking it may be worth my while to introduce a few breeding pairs of red claw crayfish for fish food purposes, now my main concern are the Crays shredding through liner with the claws? do you think if I used a sand substrate to cover the floor of the pool it would help prevent them breaking through?  or should i perhaps try convicts as a supplement to their diet? instead of the Crays?

Cheers guys I'm hoping you guys will be as helpful as you usually are!

I am presuming you have it in brackish water?  How about mollies?  I have never tried breeding cray fish, and honestly don't think I know of anyone that has.
