Any animosity toward the goldfish?

Lol she's royal that's for sure.

Hard to say re agro - she does seem interested in it from time to time but the fish always swims away. Never seen her take a proper lunge yet.

Sorry I missed this post buddy . Just cherax destructor aka good ole yabby..

She got the goldfish yesterfay. I noticed she'd nipped part of the tail fin the day before and last night I found her happily munching away in her palace.

Can just see a little "debris" scattered around the bottom now that's all that is visible. On the plus side at least one of the bright pheno bloody Mary I put in are still safe and sound !9aa378ab9337798e8a811a750b1ac49d.jpg998b089b87196e7ca44b181ebdec7bb9.jpg847191859aa4a4ed1eddccec4d5185f1.jpg

Updating the fairy tale of Abby the princess.. I had 2 boys in another tank alongside some native macrobrachium australianese courtesy of Paul Minett and the 2 male yabbies were duking it out badly one night roughly a week ago. So I caught one and moved him in with Abby and they're getting along like a house on fire.

 

She's already berried and I often see them hanging out together very close and whispering sweet nothings to each other so fingers crossed their relationship lasts the distance. I wonder now especially given the very small footprint of the tank (it is a 60 or 80 litre tall hexagon) do I sadly need to remove the male and put him elsewhere before the females eggs hatch? I have a pond he could hang out in with 2 decently sized goldfish but given Abby ate one recently I'm still not sure that's a great idea.

 

Any input from experienced Cray keepers would be appreciated :-)

 

Cheers,
