The White Ghost 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 12". They are a brilliant white color with relatively small claws for their size. They are generally peaceful towards members of its species and will rarely hunt for fish; which they are generally too slow to catch.

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 White Ghost Lobster to burrow in. They are generally peaceful towards their own kind, but require 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: 2" to 3"

I LOVE IT... Keeps people in aww when they see it
A Burt Austin , TX
Absolutely love this guy. We got our "Ahab" about 10 days ago and couldn't be happier. He shed an exoskeleton today for the first time and is almost 50% bigger and a brighter white. Can't wait to see him grow to full size. Owners beware these guys will try to escape. Mine has tried to use every decoration possible to leave with no luck....thankfilly. Trying to find where he has nestled for the day is half the fun.

After 2 weeks, mine started to go after the fish. I think he killed a beta and I had to save an angel fish from his claws. I had to give him away.
