Default Queries on lobbies setup

Btw, does lobbies or crayfish generally prefer still or moving waters?

Will those air-bubble powered big black sponge filters provide sufficent biological filtration for a 2ft setup or will ohf be more suitable?

I'm also concern if the submerged powerheads will raise the water temp enough to adversely affect the lobbies well-being.

You can just get the pair and keep them in the 2/3ft tank and i believe that the water temp should be low so air-con room the best for them.

As for decoration up to indivinduel.

Filter very simple overhang filter which i'm using so far works well.

Default Breeding Marrons

Anyone knows if there is there any success in breeding Marrons in our tanks? How long does it take for them to be sexually matured? Or at wat size?

Sorry if i missed out any earlier threads if this is discussed before. Can help link the thread or any related webpage on marrons? Thanks!
