Does anyone know if I can spice up my african tank with an invertabrate, perhaps a cobalt blue lobster which grow in captivity to be around 5in.

Thanks, on the left side I have rocks from a stone yard which I paid for the right side are slate and I borrowed them from the smokey mountains as I was passing by. As far as the fish go, I have a variety, One of everything that I could get my hands on.

i tryed the lobster a few years ago and they ate him when he shed his shell. it was a bit crule to watch and a very expensive snack.

yeah, when the crayfish molt, usually they become expensive cichlid treats.

They will also hunt your fish during the night when they get full sized... they are not very good, but they get lucky once in a while.

I had a crayfish hide in my plants and jump at fish like in a cartoon. Recomend you keep crayfish alone.
