    Ice Blue Crayfish

    This pale blue male came out of my latest hatch of crayfish. This is from a pair of regular brown P. alleni carrying blue. I got rid of most of the brown babies, keeping blues which are normally much darker than this guy. I am curious how he will look when he gets bigger.

    Are ice blues a new morph/anomaly, or when you say "usually darker", you mean like this?

    Not a new morph. I am just describing him. His blue siblings are a normal blue color like the photos you posted. He has molted once since this photo and he is still very pale.

    Some people have said if you crossed white with blues you end up with pale blues, which may be similar to this guy, although there is no white in his background that I know of.

    every once in awhile some thing odd pops up in breeding just about any critter, the next question becomes is it an odd one time mutation due to a defect that happend during development or is it a genetically inheritable one.......be an interesting one to use as breeding stock in the future to find out that second question.....

    lot of domestic dog and especially cat breeds started as a single odd individual in an otherwise normal litter.....

    Cool! If you put these in a paludarium with water and land will they make burrows on land next to the water?

    I'd like to have some of these but according to the guy I got my Vampire Crabs from exotic crayfish are not allowed to be shipped into MN anymore.

    swords.......While I see why they put that law into place.......don't want exotics crowding out the native population as often happens......this species is native down south and I don't think would surivie your winters!!! Oh well.
    They don't seem to burrow as much as some of the other cray speceis. Not sure how they would behave in a paludarium.
