I know, it kinda defeats the purpose of a quarantine right? I had a snow white socofoli in there for about a week because it had some growth on its eye. It did fine, and my Cobalt Zebra had two white dots near his fin, and when I got home tonight I noticed what was becoming a white ring around his body. Any idea what that was? So I took him out and noticed he was very easy to catch. He was in the tank for about 40 minutes when I walked in and saw the corpse of my fish in my crawdad's grasp. :(
It my first big fish loss. I've lost mollies, guppies, and all that stuff when I was younger, but nothing like this. Oh well.

if its any consolation i had a large crawfish for a long time.. i find they will only be able to catch the weak and sick so chances were probably not good for your colbalt anyways. I lost my crawfish when a wild caught afra decided to turn her over eat all her eggs and some of her too.. then the afra died of the fastest onset of bloat ever seen. big losses all around.

Crawfish also prey upon fish when they are sleeping. Personally, I think they belong in a pot with crab boil. :D
