Dwarf Orange Crayfish
The Dwarf Orange Crayfish, also known as CPO crayfish, is a popular freshwater crayfish species. Unlike many other crayfish, the Dwarf Orange Crayfish is not aggressive, except for occasional short territorial squabbles with their own species. This makes them compatible with other tank mates, including dwarf shrimp. Their peaceful nature allows for a harmonious community setup.
These crayfish have a lifespan of 1-4 years, and their vibrant orange color adds both visual appeal and activity to the aquarium. They are particularly well-suited for planted tanks since they do not consume live plants or disturb the substrate. This makes them a great addition to invertebrate/snail aquarium setups, bringing joy and diversity to the tank.
The Dwarf Orange Crayfish is also referred to as the Mexican dwarf crayfish or Orange dwarf crayfish. Their presence can enhance the overall aesthetics and dynamics of your home aquarium, providing an interesting and enjoyable experience for aquarium enthusiasts.
