    20 Gal Crayfish tank?

    Hey guys. Going to be moving my shrimp into my community tank and tearing down my shrimp tank. I'm going to be starting up a fresh 20 gal that I think I'd like to house a crayfish. I've never had a crayfish but it has always interested me, so I think it's time. Anyone have any experience setting up a crayfish tank? Not sure where to start. Thinking maybe sand for substrate, a few nice caves in there, some rock, driftwood and that's about it? Any tips on keeping the crayfish healthy would be appreciated as well. Thanks!

    They are amazing escape artists and hunters. I've had two in the past both managed to get gout several times. They will move around the tank so make sure anything you out in is heavy. They are very patient hunters the first one I got eventually cleaned out the tank. Lots of personality and fascinating to watch.
    They do like lots of hiding places. Have a good lid.

    Enjoy
