Not yet but I am rather interested in making a well rounded high protein food for my shrimp and snails.

I raise ramshorn snails for my puffers and will soon start breeding cherry shrimp for them so I'm not buying ghost shrimp all the time. If my cray is a marbled cray like I think she is her little clones will be puff food too.

I tried doing a vinegal eel culture once, but failed miserably. I haven't tried since.

Yes Marbled crayfish. I never have to worry about inbreeding since they are all female

About how old/big are they when they start reproducing? Never kept one before.

I think around 1.5 inch. They're easy as rcs. Im setting up their own 29g with lots of pvc pipes. Raising your own feeder fish is not worth the trouble for large fish.
