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!

AJ. I put my juveniles in a 55 gallon 24" tall fish tank and so far 6 have gotten out. But there is a lot to climb. They turn into escape artists at night

@Chi do you add calcium supplements for them?

@AJ I haven't had any problems with climbers yet. Now if I didn't have any condos for them I'd assume they'd look for places to escape each other.

 

@LogicalHydro I've been feeding them fortified alfalfa pellets and Spirulina sticks. The fish eat both.

Looks very cool .what temp do they require?

I've been keeping them at 78. Here is some more info for them.

Chi you've been busy! Thanks for trying out the red claw for us less seasoned folk. Can't wait to see the progress.

Was just wondering how you cook them? Do you just cook them like lobsters or crabs and steam them?

@Steve. I haven't eaten these yet. But I have eaten crayfish. Here is the recipe to how I like mine cooked.

Ha ha great idea!!! This is SUCH a great idea. I hope our school can get past students with shelfish alergies.

I was in the Maine lobster business for seven years. I look forward to incorporating species like this into my future systems.  Thanks for the group invite Chi Ma.
That picture is awesome!! The people of New England have seen this time and time again except with lobster(homerus americanus).  I can definitly see something like this fitting into my area. It makes me excited for the future!!!

@Aaron. I'd worry more about getting over the under age drinking.
Damn that looks delicious!  Whose house are we having dinner at?
