Red Crayfish 2-3 inch


One of the most colorful freshwater creatures you’ll ever find, the notorious Red Crayfish has to be seen to be believed!  The Red Crayfish has been one of our most popular specimens since our beginnings.  This crayfish is also commonly known as the Red Crayfish Freshwater Lobster, though true lobsters do not exist in freshwater.  This species originates from the Southeastern United States, but all of our specimens are tank-raised. Like most Procambarus species, the Electric Red Crayfish reaches maturity very quickly and breeds easily in the aquarium.  In fact, many of our specimens have been bred in our tanks at our facility!
