Product information
Fire Crab / Orange Tip Crab - Cherax snowden
Only at the end of last year it was described as a separate species - the beautiful green-orange patterned Cherax snowden was previously traded as a variety of Cherax holthuisi. This very nice crayfish is a relatively peaceful, nice representative of the scissor knights. Like all Cherax species it is rather crepuscular and nocturnal, but with decreasing shyness it will be seen more and more often during the day. Breeding in the aquarium is possible, but a population explosion is not to be expected. Because the juveniles grow very slowly, a little patience is needed when breeding. - Garnelio
Description

Cherax snowden was first described by Chris Lukhaup in 2015. Previously it was known as the fire crab, Cherax sp. Orange Tip or also as Cherax holthuisi "orange tip" . However, it is a distinct species. Its origins are in Papua/Irian Jaya on the Vogelkop Peninsula. The olive-green ground coloration with the serrated and orange colored claws make the Cherax snowden a very attractive crayfish.

With its rather peaceful nature, a final size of about 12 cm (measured without claws) and a life expectancy of several years, it is an extremely interesting contemporary for our aquariums. Like many Cherax species it is initially crepuscular and nocturnal, but with increasing habituation it will be seen more and more often during the day.

One pair can be kept in aquariums with an edge length of 80 cm or more. For several pairs or as a group, tanks from 100 cm are suitable. The aquarium should be well structured and furnished with a large number of caves, roots and stones. Cherax snowden does not dig particularly strongly, nevertheless the equipment should stand stably and tip-proof. The Orange Tip normally does not attack plants, especially if it has enough plant matter in its diet. However, tender plants are nibbled from time to time nevertheless. The water should be clean and rich in oxygen, the temperature should not fall below 20 to 24 °C. In nature Cherax snowden lives in rather acidic streams, a pH of 6.5 to 7.5 and a total hardness up to 25 is recommended.

The animals mate several times a year. After mating, the female carries the approximately 40-80 eggs under her abdomen for about 7-9 weeks. The freshly hatched young crayfish also stay with the mother for another few days until they leave on their own. The young animals are not very aggressive among themselves, but they grow quite slowly, so you should have some patience.

The nutrition of these crayfish is without problems. Different food like brown autumn leaves, but also fresh food(spinach, other vegetables, stinging nettle), granulate and flake food as well as frozen food are gladly accepted, whereby the nutrition should be arranged predominantly vegetable.

Cherax snowden are quite peaceful crayfish - also among themselves. Therefore they can be kept well in a community aquarium. However, fish with long fins and bottom-oriented fish live in danger of being caught and nipped or even eaten. Snails also like to be nipped and eaten. With shrimps the Cherax Orange Tip can usually be well socialized. However, under no circumstances should it come into contact with North and Central American crayfish. Since these can transmit crayfish plague, water contact should also be avoided. As with all crayfish, the aquarium should be well covered, otherwise there is a risk of escape.

Our food recommendation: Freshwater crayfish have a very varied diet in the wild. The Natureholic Crayfish Feed Sticks contain in a biologically balanced form only those ingredients that these crayfish in this or similar form to their natural food spectrum. This naturally supports and promotes moulting, growth and reproduction. Due to their protein content they are ideally suited for omnivorous crayfish of the genera Procambarus, Cambarus, Cambarellus, Astacus and the Cherax crayfish from Australia, which are basically omnivores that like to eat animal as well as vegetable food. The crayfish of the genus Cherax from Papua also like to eat a portion of animal food when they are young, but later they switch mainly to plant food.

Our plant recommendation: Use for planting NatureHolic InVitros. These are free of snails, planarians and other unwanted co-inhabitants. Also free of algae spores, bacteria and fungi.

Expert Tip: We recommend for fish keeping the NatureHolic 3 Phase Liquid. The care set offers the best all-round protection for your animals. It ensures optimal conditions for successful breeding and keeping.

Hallo Stefan, vielen Dank fuer deine Frage! Wir raten ab, Bodenbewohner und am Boden schlafende Tiere werden attackiert.

Question: "Hallo, würde den Krebs gerne als Pärchen halten, Aktuelle Besatzung: ca 10 Guppys, 5 Platy, 5 Molly, 10 Algengarnelen und viele Schecken die sich als Futter anbieten. Das Aquarium hat 120l, ist gut durchstrukturiert mit vielen Versteckmöglichkeiten. Geht das? Oder gäbe es andere größere Krebse/Garnelen die ich halten könnte. Habe auch ein kleines Becken."

Hallo Max, vielen Dank fuer deine Frage! Guppys schlafen am Boden und werden von Krebsen gefressen. Sie koennen nicht zusammen gehalten werden. Wir empfehlen Faechergarnelen.
