So, I hate fish. Well, eating them anyways. So I had to find something that I like to eat. In comes Mr. Red Claw Crayfish <--click link. Vegeterian, non territorial, prolific breeder, gets to 1.25 pounds. Sounds good to me! So I went in search of the elusive Red Claw. There were only a few people that carry them 2 here in California and one I found in Florida. The one in Florida is the only one that bothered returning my call and answering my E-mails. So they get my business. The place is called Stick Fins Fish Farm <--click link. I ordered them last week they shipped yesterday via USPS Express Mail and arrived alive and happy 11 A.M. at my doorstep. I highly recommend Stick Fins!
Here are some pics:
I love presents!

This is a "small breeder".
Chi Ma, Your 'red' claws make me 'green' :-)
I could drive to Stick Fins in an hour or so....but I can't have them, unless I get a permit for them. Then I have to be raising them for a 'commercial' reason.
I'm putting them in this system here.

What are you putting theses guys in a big stock tank and do you have to add a gravel for them to breed in?
Cool! How many do you think you can keep in a system? There was a study done at the University of Nebraska a few years ago with prawns and from what I read you could not grow very many versus the amount of water needed. But, they were not doing AP. Keep us updated.
Looks great Chi! Looking forward to hearing your updates.
