Default Lobster/Crayfish 18th Edition

Finally we have come to a close to the 17th Edition which was halfway disrupted by the database corruption. Then again, we welcome back the resident expert, bro Lobsterman, back to the fray. We can only expect more fruitful discussion to come.

Most of these Cherax sp. originate from indonesian/australian region. I'm just guessing that our water temp is just a little high for them. Most I've read is to have between 20/22-26/28degC regions. Not sure if any cray keepers is willing to invest in chillers to determine so. So far, bigger LFS do have their water slightly chilled, thus able to sustain them in their tank for that long. (but maybe I'm wrong)

I've not gone to that extend yet, since my environment doesn't really cater I've not even tried rearing those species. (need to get CO permission for more tanks...haha)
