Dwarf Crayfish also known as Mexican Dwarf Crayfish are mainly found in the lakes, rivers, and streams in Mexico and southern areas of the United States. The small size and fairly peaceful nature of these crayfish make them more suitable for community tanks than their larger relatives. They may still pick on snails and very small fish or shrimp. They have a lifespan of up to 2 to 3 years on average.
Dwarf crayfish can live in almost any freshwater aquarium and are among the toughest freshwater tank inhabitants available to the hobby. They are undemanding when it comes to care requirements. These are very active creatures that love to explore and do not spend all of their time under rocks.
If you are planning to keep these little crayfish with other crayfish or other large types of fish and invertebrates, is important to keep them in a tank with plenty of hiding places. Crayfish are vulnerable when they are shedding their exoskeleton, so scaping of the tank with live plants, driftwood, rocks, and/or caves is vital to their survival. Also, it is normal for a crayfish to eat his/her exoskeleton after molting.
