This also includes the relatively new orange dwarf crayfish, which is rapidly becoming one of the more popular species of crayfish to keep. Dwarf crayfish are native to Mexico and the southern United States. They primarily inhabit streams and small rivers, though they can also be found in ponds and lakes. They tend to prefer slow-moving waters and are mostly found in the shallows. Housing Dwarf crayfish is undemanding when it comes to housing, and a handful of them can be housed comfortably in a 10 gallon (45 liters) aquarium. However, if you want to keep more than two or three of them in an aquarium, then you should consider a 20 gallon (91 liters) long aquarium to be the minimum size. Any aquarium containing dwarf crayfish should include numerous hiding places. Crayfish molt regularly and they require a place to hide until their shell hardens again. Until their shell hardens, they are completely defenseless against other crayfish and fish in their tank – so include hiding places if you don’t want them to get eaten. Mexican dwarf crayfish are omnivores, and they will eat just about anything that they can get their claws on. In the home aquarium, they should be fed a regular diet of a high-quality sinking pellet, along with regular feedings of live or frozen foods and vegetables
