Buy a small minnow trap at Wal-Mart and drop it in the nearest pond , lake or drainage ditch for 24 hours.

Bait it with bacon for crayfish and romaine lettuce for snails.

If you're unsure about water quality, quarantine for a month before introducing them into your main tank.

This time of year you may be able to hit up some place that sells crawfish for food too. Maybe you could talk them out of a live one for cheap. I go down to the lake with a dip net and flip over rocks and there is usually something under the rocks. Usually a small catfish or a crawfish.

That would be a negative. They are about the same size and would not suggest putting them together. I may have some more blue marble creys in soon. Those might do ok.

i used to use a piece of bacon on a string as a kid. i'd go along dirt roads that usually had alot of water in the ditches and they'd be everywhere. i wont be able to put any shrimp in my tank unless they are at least 4". i have a 10" red oscar, 5" green terror, 5.5" featherfin cat, 6"aeci and bumblebee, female red german male convict and electric yellow pushin 4.5" each, a living blue stonii and a dragon blood cichlid at 4", 2" ruby crystal peacock, two 1.5" bolivian rams and a 9" pleco. oh and a 4.5" tinfoil named leftovers.. i had 5 and he was the only one "leftover". my tank is fairly aggressive to say the least.

I usually get the blue marbled creys at 2"-4" the Red Cherry Shrimp are small. They are maybe an inch at the biggest.
