    Hey Gents

    Lovely little critter this. Reason for selling is basically just that he is in the wrong neighbourhood (shallower water species in a deepwater tank...)

    Very active and great to watch. An obvious :nono: with shrimp eating fish...

    This should be snatched up in no time. Would have loved it for my system but it won't be ready in time
    Good luck with your sale Jaco

    Jaco, those crays are more safe than people think, I get millions but have given up because the boxers dig them out their holes, the only things I have ever lost to boxers, but the crays are real cool little creatures, I would only be worried about small chromis and goldies with them, they do take a long time to grow also

    Thanks for the input. I must admit, this one actually grew quite quick. Molted about three times in just over a month...!!!

    But I think it will "settle" on growth a bit. But yes, they really are very cool little guys...!!!

    Not sure I understand this statement:

    "shallower water species in a deepwater tank..." ?

    I have a full out NPS tank. As far as I know these guys don't come from the depts of the ocean where you would find deepwater fish and NPS coral. :)

    That is quick then, best I had is them growing to 4-5cms in about 9 months or so, and then staying there. The small ones I have found don't last more than two or three nights with the boxers, the only thing the boxers have ever eaten.
