    Nothing. He's just not in breeding colours so his chest isn't black.


     
    No picture?

    ugh i hate having to choose one fish! maybe i will to a molly tank or i will probably be soooo tempted to but the baby crays in there because i dont have the heart to use them as feeders [​IMG] or... i could get a breeding pair of crays and fulfill my dream of breeding crays (not just cloning marbleds). i am soooooo tempted to get the eletric orange crayfish!!! o_O

    Thanks.  Unfortunately they didn't last long, they all died in less than 2 weeks of getting them.  The male was the last to go.  Maybe it's something in my water or maybe they just weren't that healthy.  The females never seemed to settle in, always hiding up in the back near the top.
