The Yabby is a freshwater crayfish, also known as a crawchie, crawdad, craybob or even lobbie, it's dependant on where you come from. These are the Electric Blue varient, scientific name - Cherax Albidus The colour can range from a pale blue to a deep electric blue. Ideal water qualities are, · pH: 7.0 - 8.0 · General Hardness: 50 - 300 ppm. . Temperature 12.C - 20.C They can grow to over 20cm The name C. albidus is known by some groups as being thought of as just a variation of C.destructor. Cherax albidus generally is more slender and has a mat of dense setae on the claws. The housing/ aquarium should be treated exactly like C.destructor though, They are rather hardy and comfortable in cold or tropical water. Keep note that they will dig and eat plants so not recommended for display or plant tanks. They can be territorial so be sure to provide plenty of 'homes' / hiding places for them. As most know, yabbies grow they shed their shell and at this time can be vulnerable and eaten by other tank inhabitants. If for any reason yabbies lose a limb, be aware that these WILL be regrown over the next few moults. As with other invertebrates, they are sensitive to copper treatments. Oh and don't forget.... Yabbies are also escape artist so a cover glass is needed for them, or they just may wonder what is on the other side.
