Ideal Water Parameters:

  • pH: 7.0 - 8.0
  • General Hardness: 50 - 300 ppm
  • Temperature: 12°C - 20°C

Size: Can grow over 20 cm

Hardiness: Yabbies are hardy and can thrive in both cold and tropical water.

Behaviour:

  • Digging and Plant Eating: Yabbies will dig and eat plants, making them unsuitable for display or plant tanks.
  • Territorial: Provide plenty of hiding places or "homes" to reduce territorial aggression. Good aeration is also required.
  • Colour Development: Full colour is usually attained at around 10-12 cm if the water is clean and clear.

Diet:

  • Scavengers: They will eat anything they find on the bottom of the tank.
  • Preferred Foods: Algae wafers and high-protein fish food pellets.
