(5) pieces of the Blue Morph variation of the Cambarellus Diminutus. It has been improved through selective breeding for darker blue coloration. Color may appear more charcoal/grey in higher PH or hard water aquariums. These will be Juvenile sized approx 1/4-1/2 inch. From my experience these are very peaceful and CAN be kept with shrimp, Adult crays will not grow much larger than an adult shrimp. It is recommended to provide moss, wood, hideouts etc. for them to feel their safest.
NOTE: NOT ALL CRAYS WILL BE BLUE, SOME WILL BE GREYISH BUT CARRY THE "BLUE" GENE. YOU CAN IMPROVE THE COLOR OF THE LINE BY REMOVING/CULLING NON BLUE CRAYS AT MATURITY.
Will live in many environments, but best colors tend to be shown at a lower ph 6.0-6.8, on a dark substrate

I love these little guys. Ordered 5. Got 6. One is a dark beautiful blue. They're a nightmare to sex but they're already eating even in the acclimation tank!

100% hysterical to watch my shrimp explode off their food dish when one of these guys comes in to eat. Wife says it's like a bag of popcorn popping all at once. They are shy at first, and I did notice my neos stopped mating for a short time.Does not take long (3 weeks or so) and my shrimp are back to making more shrimp and these guys are walking around the tank like they own it. Definitely worth putting in a tank or two
