hey, iv been trying to figure out what plants i can keep with my crayfish.... Planted tank= healthier tank  Smiley!!!!

So far Marimbo moss balls havent been touched by the cray, duck weed is also fine as it floats.... Iv also added giant vallis 3 days ago and so far he hasnt touched it, looks promising Smiley

Now i remember my old cray years ago shredded up amazon sword plants, pygmy chain sword, anacharis and cabomba.

Next on the list is java fern.

any other plants out there crayfish resistant? Anubias maybe?

Thanks,

My Marble crays eat every plant they can get a hold of, even mosses, but my other dwarfs don't bother any of the plants.   confused
