Hello from AlienSpecies

Post by AlienSpecies on Sun Sep 05, 2010 5:58 pm

Hi, I am pretty new to keeping tropical fish. In the past I have kept various snakes and the odd fish here and there.

1 year ago I bought 3 Red claw crayfish (Australian crayfish, Cherax quadricarinatus). I have 2 tanks setup. I have a female and male in a 30gal tank and 1 female in a 20gal tank. They tick along at 26 degrees C and hopefully will get around to reproducing soon.

Currently the tanks have individual filters and heaters but I will looking to upgrade to a much bigger tank in the next six months so I can take on a new project. I'm an experienced gardener and would like to combine my love for keeping fish with the gardening by growing aquaponic salad in my basement. I am looking for advice in tank setups, especially bell siphons, sump systems and air pumps , so I can put together my new project. Might use cold water Perch instead of the crays. Don't worry I am not going to eat the crayfish!!! Promise wink
