I used to have a few of em.. LOVE EM.. where did you get him.. i want one again.. at one point I had a red and a blue one.. my favorite part was when they shed their skin.. the firs time it happened I thought that I had two lol.. it was funny.. at least to me..
i got him at petland. they have red ones (sold as feeders and much much less expensive) and the electric blue ones.
spak has only molted once since i got him, but i think it's getting time for him to do it again. i'm really excited about it!
he's an electric blue crayfish. they're sometimes sold under the name of freshwater lobsters. a lot of petstores sell them, i happened to get him at petland.
they're pretty easy to take care of, i keep spak in a communal tank with some short finned, fast top swimming fish, as he would eat slower fish that he could grab ahold of. he eats a pea or a piece of sinking goldfish food once every 2-3 days.
:) i'll pass it along that you think he's pretty.
Mine likes to take snips at my Oscars.
He was supposed to be a Blue Crayfish, but he has red flashes on his front claws which makes him something else (I can't remember and kevins asleep or I'd ask him to remind me).
He's adorable thou :)
