    Received them early in the day, and go to work night shift at work and come home and they are already breeding! I got 14 and all of them survived the trip. Gonna need a larger tank already! Much easier to breed than the oranges.

    Purchased these crays to replace some severely inbred, eBayed CPOs that did poorly in my tank. Due to Post Office incompetence, they had a harrowing journey from Nebraska to North Carolina that somehow included an unscheduled, intermediate stop in Oregon (!). Miraculously, they arrived safe and (mostly) sound, with only one or two missing claws to show for their troubles. I attribute this mostly to One Stop's careful packaging and inclusion of several plants for them to hang on to. Also included a sample of shrimp/invertebrate food that the crays seem to like a lot.

    These guys are very cute, and I was surprised at how much smaller they are than the CPOs. This particular batch has a wide variety of colors--blue, charcoal, and chestnut with plenty of mottling and variation. After my bad experience with the CPOs, I'll take the more subdued coloring in exchange for greater genetic diversity. A few even have brown bodies and bright blue claws/legs, which is neat. Temperamentally, they're pretty active in the tank and fun to watch. Somewhat gentler than the CPOs toward one other, although they did nab two or three of my RCS in the first few hours before the shrimp wised up and got off the tank floor. I think they were probably just ravenous from their long trip, and I haven't seen any other incidents.

    Overall, I'm very satisfied. These are very fun crayfish for an excellent price. Thanks so much!
