I know no one has said anything in this thread for a bit..but I just wanted to say I signed up because of this thread!
So sorry to hear about your crayfish. Same thing happened to me yesterday.
I was at the pet store, and saw a crayfish being attacked by another in a tank, and when I checked him out, I realized he only had one right leg..and his left claw (its really small) and then the two "nubs" that I guess help him shove food in his mouth. So of course I had to take this little pathetic thing home...the others were going to kill him!
I had just set up my 20 gallon tank the night before, because I got some aquatic wood for my tank that I will be slowly adding to in the next couple of months. I figured since I wouldnt have fish for quite a bit (I want to get it nicely planted and decorated first)..that he could have this entire tank to himself!
He struggles to get around..but I had some sinking betta pellets that were the perfect size for his little claw and he seems to be eating them.
I hope he will grow his legs back really is sad!
So far so good though..we'll see!

Btw..his name is "Nubby" (of course!)..and I'm Nicole! =]

That story is pure awesomeness.

Thanks for joining.  Give Nubby a kiss for me (through the glass, no need to scare the poor guy into loosing his last leg!)

Put me back out to sea to play with the fishies...I don't belong on land!  [img width= height=" border="0][/img]
