To All bro take note,
Yes CPO is very nice & pretty to keep but remember try to get from different source of CPO if you wish to breed & rear them for long.

If you get from the same source, lightly you are getting brother & sister.
when you breed them, you actually inbreed them. this will weaker further their gene.

They are difficult to breed & very sensitive to temp & sudden change in water parameter. CPO berries female will drop her eggs if she sense sudden change. Baby crays are very sensitive also, they will die if sense change in water parameter.

these are what i have experience breeding & keeping them.

CPO are rated in cray keeping in Hard form.

At last I managed to dig out my own old thread on CPO.

Anyone know what gravel is best suit for CPO? pH level?

I am planning to get my tank ready for them before buying.

Thanks in advance.

I have 2 pairs of them in my CRS tank. tank a bit empty don look niice, lol. already had them for about a month and so far they are doing well in the tank, they are not fussy eaters but will prefer frozen bloodworms, dead fish and snail to food pellets for crs.

i have yet to witness any of them catching any shrimps yet. I hope to see them breed soon too. cute little critters and are responsive during feeding time.

do note that they can be aggresive towards each other and need space and hiding place.

I think I yesterday saw Y618 selling it pretty cheaply but the colour faded. Should have waited for the price to go down!

U can try the food below bro. Works fine with those normal crayfish I used to kept.

Also, those frozen green pea sold at any supermarket are also good for them. Defrozee it below giving them to your crayfish. If the green pea float, just squezze a little to force the trapped air in the green pea out and it will sink to the below. It's cute to watch crayfish work on green pea, very cute looking.
