Active and Engaging This engaging crayfish spends much of its time exploring and scavenging, adding a dynamic presence to your tank. It thrives on a varied diet, although it is known to consume ornamental plants, requiring careful tank planning and management.

Breeding and Community The Red Chili Crayfish becomes territorial as it matures, particularly during breeding season. It’s easy to breed in captivity, though the fry grow slowly. When keeping multiple crayfish, ensure plenty of hiding spots to prevent aggression.

Tank Recommendations A minimum of a 30-gallon tank is recommended for a single adult, with larger tanks needed for multiple specimens. This crayfish can coexist with fast-swimming fish but should not be housed with other bottom-dwellers. Find other similar items located in our invertebrates category.
