Dwarf crayfish in the aquarium

Keeping dwarf crayfish in an aquarium requires some special considerations. Here are some important points to bear in mind if you want to keep dwarf crayfish in your aquarium:

Suitable aquarium

We recommend an aquarium with a capacity of at least 40 to 60 liters for keeping dwarf crayfish. A larger aquarium offers more space for the crayfish and provides a more stable water environment.

Water quality

Water quality is crucial for the well-being of dwarf crayfish. Make sure the water is clean and has the right temperature and pH levels. Regular water changes and the use of suitable filters are also important.

Hiding places

Dwarf crayfish need hiding places to feel safe and comfortable. You can place caves, plants and other decorations in your aquarium so that the crayfish can retreat.


Dwarf crayfish are omnivorous and can be fed a variety of foods, including special crayfish pellets and frozen foods. Make sure you meet their nutritional needs to ensure their health.

Social behavior

Be aware of the social behavior of crayfish. Some species can be territorial, while others live peacefully in groups. Observe your aquarium carefully to ensure that the crayfish interact harmoniously with each other.
