Re: [crayfish] crayfish
I suggest you to change water of tank compeletly and give them a bath with 20 PPT salt water for a period of 20 - 30 Min. then transfer them to the freshwater in a clean tank. this the way that I have tried successfully for red claw crayfish with same problem. Hope you can get rid of the parasites.
I just joined your group but unfortunately I have a problem. Last night I
moved my large crayfish into a bigger tank. I just got him about two weeks
ago. This tank has a flourescent light so I was able to look at the crayfish
closely. I literally went to bed with the skeevies after seeing this. These
tiny little inchworm like things crawling all over him. I even saw two of
them having a fight. I also saw smaller worms and other little bugs trying
to get under his legs and stuff. Also these little red bumps on his back
which I think may be the eggs of these creatures, but may just be a physical
characteristic I never noticed. Now I know that you can't use medication on
invertebrates so I'm wondering how to kill these buggers. It was like I was
watching some horrible b movie. he was even trying to claw them off. If
anybody could help, please it would be most appreciated. I'm in a bit of a
rush to do something. I can take some decent digital pictures of him if
anybody needs a pic. thanks

Crayfish will burrow if the waterlevel drops too fast sometimes more
than 2 feet. I have read where their burrowing ruins levees around
rice patties because they are occasionall drained to harvest.
Crayfish also burrow after breeding if there is a temperature change.
I just published a bok on raising crayfish in small ponds as small as
12x12 feet. If you are interested you can buy it on eBay, it has had
nothing but positive reviews so far. 160087020429 is the item number
and I can get it shipped out in tomorrows mail if you pay for it
today. Pond raised crayfish will eat tender vegetation and if you are
raising them in a high population density you can also feed them fish
pellets, if they sink it is better but not necessary. They would
enjoy fresh meat in small pieces too. If you see them up on the bank
at night they are looking for food so I would feed them more.
Bullfrogs love crayfish so you will have to decide if you want to
cull them. I like to eat them myself and I rescue tadpoles for the
same reason. Live in NW Ohio? Do you know the species you stocked? I
can send you some good web addresses for many species.
