20 gallon is the recommended minimum. They get around 5".

Yes, I know, but that is what it is named/labeled, which is what was asked.

Actually they are a form of freshwater lobster I work at a LFS and I used to breed them under the name "Electric Blue Crayfish" they come in white "not albino" electric blue, orange and there is rumor of a green one. I know the blues come from southern united states. But as. Opposed to 5"in they can reach 10in to 1.5ft in length. I think this is seen more in wild caught crayfish/Lobsters but my old female grew to 8inches.

no there not. they are crays. and the larger ones you are thinking of arefrom australia,and i think they have the scientific name procambarus alleni. and i beleive sparkys is a procambarus clarki,which i think are the ones thta come frome the southern states. i beleive i have a procambarus alleni female who is about 6" long right now

Great picture! I wouldn't believe it if I didn't just see it.

The only way it could be better is if they "rode" around on the lobster, using him as they're own personal chauffeur.
