Included is one male/female pair of Orange CPO Dwarf Crayfish. These will be young adults that are around 1/2 to 1+ inch long, but they grow up to 1.6 inches long as adults and become a more intense orange as they grow.

CPO crayfish are one of our favorite invertebrates. They are much larger in size than dwarf shrimp (they can grow up to 1.6 inches long) and tend to live much longer, but are still small enough to comfortably live in a tank as small as 5 gallons. They are one of the most brightly colored varieties of invertebrates we offer, and their large size draws the eye right to them. These are freshwater crayfish only.

These are quite active and do not hide during the day like most crayfish. They definitely make an exciting addition to an aquarium and are a great way to get into invertebrates if you haven't joined the craze already!

Though the CPO crayfish is small enough not to be a threat to most other tank inhabitants, they have on occasion gone after dwarf shrimp, so we don't recommend keeping them in the same tank.

- pH level range: 6.0 to 8.0
- Temperature range: 60 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit
- Water type: Medium hard
- Recommended Aquatic Arts tank mates: Fast-moving fish (such as Danios, Cobra Guppies, etc.). Cichlids can be aggressive towards crayfish and should not be kept in the same tank.
- Additional notes: CPO crayfish are omnivores and will eat leftovers, dead tank mates, and even fish waste. Dwarf crayfish prefer to live in tanks with live aquatic plants (such as java moss, willow moss, hornwort, etc.). This is because they like the cover that plants provide, they love to graze on the plants for algae, and the plants help keep the water clean for them.

  • These miniature freshwater crayfish have a beautiful and eye-catching fiery orange coloration that will add a burst of color to your tank! The coloration of these dwarf crayfish is EXTREMELY high quality - much higher quality than others on the market!

  • ay breed with each other in home freshwater aquariums! They ship as 1/2 to 1+ inch long young adults that will grow up to 1.6 inches long.

  • These do not hide during light hours like most crayfish - they are very active and mobile.

  • Easy to care for - the CPO crayfish feed on leftover food or almost any kind of fish food.

  • All Aquatic ArtsTM (formerly InvertObsessionTM) brand plants and animals come with a 100% live arrival guarantee, plus free email support directly from the owners!
