The Northwest Arkansas Aquarium Society is an organization formed to bring together the aquarist community in Northwest Arkansas and the Ozark region. Our members range from new hobbyists to long time breeders, and we keep a large variety of fishes.

Come to a meeting! Learn about fish and make friends with fellow hobbyists.

    Electric White Crayfish

    Vital Statistics




    Origin: USA

    Size: 4 inches

    Temperament: semi-aggressive, opportunistic

    Sociability: territorial toward other crayfishes

    Breeding: egglayer

    Sexing: front pair of swimmerets is larger in males

    Diet: omnivorous

    Water Chemistry: pH 6.0–7.8; dH 5–19

    Temperature: 65–82°F


    The electric white crayfish, also known as the snow white crayfish, is a new entry into the hobby. It is a porcelain white with black eyes. The species is unclear. Some sources list it as Procambarus alleni, the Florida crayfish. Others list it as P. clarkii, the Lousiana red swamp crayfish. It's likely that white specimens are available of both species.

    The electric white crayfish is an opportunistic feeder and an omnivore. It will eat nearly everything organic. Fish will be eaten if they can be caught, so are at risk if kept in the same aquarium. Crayfish also eat some aquatic plants. All foods are accepted, including flakes. Sinking pellets make especially good food choices.

    Crayfish like to dig, too. So they often uproot plants and may even collapse rock structures by trying to build a burrow beneath them.
