Blue Crayfish darkening

Postby marcelomelloramos » August 1st, 2013, 8:15 pm

Hello, Good Evening.

When I bought my Crawfish they were little blue, were gradually becoming more colored. For a while now they are darkening, turning brown.
I have one female and four males. They are well, healthy and crossing and having puppies, but they are very dark.
Is there adequate food to improve the color?

The crayfish's color is often very related to their diet. What are you feeding them? I've read various things on encouraging color brightening/darkening in crayfish, most of it anecdotal so I'm not sure how trustworthy it is.
