I tried a place I was referred to out in san Diego that said they had them but did not, I went round and round for months! but.....I finally got REDCLAWS! 5 female and 4 males in my tote aquaponic. only 2 inch long but just happy to finally have them and hopefully will get them to breed and eventually put in my kid pool. been growing giant fresh water prawns but think I will be giving them up after I get the red claws going.  the freshwater prawns to aggressive and need brackish water for the babies etc. I like simpler! lol

Hi Everyone!  I am outside the Philadelphia region in Chadds Ford, PA and wondering if any of you might be close and know of a local source of red claw?? :)  I don't mind driving a few hours...

Howdy. Last year I finished my ecology master studies. Right now apart from other activities I have crayfish aquaculture in mind. My exact question would be where could I purchase Cherax quadricarinatus in Europe. Any information would be helpful!

Any luck? A local store in Winchester is trying to get me about 12 but I think there coming from out of the US. If you have info please pass along!

Looking to start a small red claw crayfish (Cherax quadricarinatus)farm for myself in a 2k gallon pool. Would like to purchase from someone a few to get started. I am in San Diego CA.

If anyone can help me I appreciate it. Thanks so much all.!

like to find a source for juvenile red claws. Also does anyone have a comment on Yellow Perch & red claws in a 110 Gal. tank?

My two tanks outside on the porch will have heaters, but my two tanks inside will only start with temp sensors. I have been talking with Kellen about bluegill, when I am up with 5 700 gallon tanks.. My two old catfish are the hardiest.

Red Claw can be fed 50% sinking catfish feed and 50% rabbit pellets. They like carrot pieces, too. The water temp has to be kept 60-degrees F or higher or they will die. They need 1 place to hide per Red Claw like a PVC pipe. I lost all my RC, about 1,000-Red Claw, because a heater went out last winter and I live on the Gulf Coast. The biggest got up to a foot long. Bluegill, catfish, and bass are better suited for non-tropical climates.
