Orange dwarf crayfish. That's my best guess. Beware with crayfish in community tanks. Either fish fins will get nipped or he will be a fish snack. Give him hiding places.

Yea I read that may happen there's lots of caves and hiding places in that tank, and his diet will be met, so hopefully he won't eat anyone. I'll post some better pics of the little guy later. When he adjusts fully to his new home.

They like it dark and to dig. So you don't want to have any undergravel filtration going.

Nope no under gravel filtration, hob filters, with intake grills to keep little ones out of the filter

Cool little guy =) I just got a few myself last week. They are dark blue or brown. Funny enough they're commonly called cajun crayfish since you've named yours jambalaya lol. That orange color looks quite stunning!

Crayfish are great ! Would love to set up another tank but I'm afraid of him eating the other fish in the tank
