I know.. that's why never quote you. But like I said, QH has quite a few... albeit not very big in size.

I thought the rule of thumb is if they don't finish it within 2 hours, you overfed it? I feed my zebra once every night. My brother feeds his white cray twice a day with all sorts of stuff: dead feeders (fish and ghost shrimp), MP, even grapes and boiled green peas!

Is your white capable of catching live prey?

Haha... feed two at one go see how it goes.

I feed mine with dead fish/market prawn. My bro feeds them with dead feeder guppies/mollies. He has four 4" sea basses (kim bak lor) with his white in a 2' tank. Give them varied diet, I hear they eat peas/green beans and Elodea like no one's business. Elodea grows super fast lah, doubling their length in a week.

You sure got so cheap or not? I got see before at Qian Hu when I not so crazy about crayfishes, they were selling like $35 for one, and the size is small one leh!
not sure if its hoa creek. It has blue claw with white edge and pinkish body.
I saw the container side wrote $14. Got 1 big one there and the rest medium / small. Check it out

Okay thanks!

I feel that you cannot force the cray to be swift in catching crays overnight. You gotta train it first, I always put it in a plastic container first, then put one guppy inside and do water changes only, once the cray gets real hungry, it will grab it...

Well, that's how I train mine, but as far as I know, it doesn't work for Blue Moons and Hoa Creeks, because they're really peaceful inhabitants and eat off pellets and drift wood most of the time
