I used to keep the tiny Cambarellus shufeldtii a few years ago and finally got another dwarf crayfish a recently. This time it’s a Cambarellus patzcuarensis ‘orange’, better known as the CPO crayfish or dwarf orange crayfish. What a fun addition 😍

This called for a full caresheet.

You can now find everything you need to know about the dwarf orange crayfish on Aquariadise here!

Hey Fishblr! I could REALLY use your help. And…

I’m doing
an online survey for my bachelor thesis and I need as many (qualifying) respondents as
possible to fill it out.
The aim of the survey is to find out in which ways
celebrities can use their fame for the public good – not related to fishkeeping but definitely an important subject. 

The survey consists of a few general demographic
questions, a short video and a bunch of additional questions.
Should only take you about 10 minutes and it’s completely anonymous! I’m
looking for respondents between 18-25 years of age who are located in the
United States.

So what’s
in it for you? I’m giving away a set of SIX Marimo balls to one lucky
These decorative aquatic moss balls look great in an aquarium or just a cute vase. Just leave your e-mail
address at the end of the survey to enter. 

Thanks in
advance and good luck to all participants.

➡➡➡ Please click here to start the survey and participate in the giveaway. ⬅⬅⬅

Note: it is possible to enter more than once! You can only fill out the questionnaire one time but you can send it to a friend or family member so they can fill it out and enter your e-mail address to increase your chances.

You can send the survey to friends/family using this link:

Reblogging is nice and makes you awesome.
