My Oscars were hungry today...

When I came home from work today I found my 4 Oscars having dinner.
It was a large crayfish that has been thir tank mate since I got them.

It kind of makes me mad cause he was so cool.
He has always lived under a piece of driftwood and only came out to eat.
This time I guess he came out to get eaten.

It is sad because it was my wife and kids favorite.
So I guess we will have to get another one.
HMMM..Could this be a good excuse to get another tank..LOL

Well..Why not?!

"Darn honey...the crayfish seems to have died. I know it was your favorite....I know, I will buy you some more"

I can see you coming home with a nice 55 gal setup, getting some more fishies, and lots of crayfish!

Heres wishing you well, LOL.

That is an interesting story to me, because I used to keep a crayfish with a half-grown oscar and that little blue fella had the oscar pinned to the other side of the tank 24/7, and I had to return the invert to restore peace in the tank. That was one spunky crayfish - so maybe if I had more oscars it would have been more of an even playing field.

I still want to set up a blue crayfish tank, just because I think they are cool. Sorry you had to witness the carnage.... that's never fun.

Awww...sorry about your crayfish, Oscarbreeder I hope you have better luck with your next one.

P.S. I just saw some really cool-looking oscars at the hatchery on Saturday! They were small -- probably juvies.

I'd have to agree with Tankgirl. 1 v 1 the crayfish would whup up on an oscar ;P Those guys are just big whiny wimps, like little puppy dog fish. But four of them? Might have been more than he could handle.

Of course, its always possible he died and they went at him afterwards when they noticed.
