Cambarellus diminutus

25. February 2015

received nice bred specimens of this tiny species from Indonesia.
Initially Cambarellus diminutus originates from North America, where it
occurs along the Gulf of Mexico. In contrast to the larger species of
crayfish, the species belonging to the genus Cambarellus fit perfectly
for community tanks. C. diminutus is the smallest species of all and
attains a maximum length of about 2.5 cm. The bright shine of the
carapax is very obvious: it looks a bit like polished porcelain.

For our customers: the animals have code 481322 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
