hey welcome to the forum

from my personal experience, get rid of the crayfish. they can be aggressive and will grab a fish if it has the opportunity.

I had a few blue crayfish a few years back they multiply like crazy Hundreds at a time, and you don't even need a male females can hold sperm in them. I still keep finding the suckers in my tank in the filters. there like cockroaches. the only thing that I would think is beneficial is the fish love to eat the tiny babies.

thanks...ya *** been trying to catch him... lol hes a fast tricky lil guy..

i have 2 big wooden boxes on pallets that are full of cobblestone rocks that are pre cut on the bottoms at a 90* and ones that are flat on the bottom... all different sized cobble stone.. the tops are all rounded.. are these safe to put in the tank? im guessing they need to be soaked or something b4 they go in...

i really want to put in one of those 3d backgrounds now that *** seen them lol..but i dont know if thats possible if the tank already running? i have endles amounts of foam to play with so i was thinking if giving it a few trys...but if i have to completly drain the tank to put one in then idk....

Yeah unfortunately at 4 feet you have to drain it. I read an article on doing it in tens without draining somewhere.

well i was thinking id be able to do a lil one..maybe not a fully covered 3d background but 2 or 3 small sections that i can cover the heater and filter intake and powerhead.. like maybe just the back corners and accross the top of the tank.. with a black painted glass soo it looks like the interence to a cave or something... ill have to play around with it i guess... gonna have my pops bring me some foam from his work...they got tons of it litterly
