Well i got a crayfish...

Broke down, taking the chance, I bought a blue cray fish. Anybody with experience, what should I feed him? The 1mm nls pellets I feed my cichlids, don't get past them to the ground. Appreciate any ideas

I've had them before and let me warn you that they will kill small or weak fish. As for food they will eat anything that can get to the ground. When they molt they become very vaunerable and need ample places to hide. Hope this helps!

Anything specific to eat? I've heard turtle sticks or koi food or something?

Drop pellets in there after the lights have been out for a couple of hours.
