overview
The Sunburst Fire Lobster is from the rivers and streams of North East Australia, and is one of the larger species of crayfish attaining a total length of up to 7". They are tan to green in color with bright orange forearms, with relatively small claws for their size. They are generally peaceful towards members of the same species and will rarely hunt for fish. They are generally too slow to catch the latter.

Provide a freshwater aquarium of at least 50 gallons with plenty of rocks, and a substrate with a moderate grain size or finer for the Lobster to burrow in. They can be aggressive towards their own kind, and require plenty of room for territories, and a larger aquarium will be needed if housing more than one. When housing more than one, provide at least 40 gallons per Lobster and include plenty of cover including both rocks and plants.

They will not typically bother fish, unless they are very small, and slow enough for the lobster to catch. It is very difficult to differentiate between the sexes of these crayfish, and we will not be able to pair them for sale. They are relatively easy to breed in captivity, and the eggs hatch in about 21 days. After hatching, the fry can be fed flake or pellet foods, and should be separated in order to keep them from eating each other.

These Lobsters are omnivorous, and will act as a scavenger in the aquarium, eating any food that comes to rest on the bottom. Supplement their diet with a quality sinking pellet, flake food and dried algae.

Approximate Purchase Size: 4" to 6"
