Do you mean this guy, Cherax quadricarinatus? http://www.practicalfishkeeping.co.uk ... rticle.php?article_id=432

You pretty much have to keep them in a species tank, you certainly can't keep them with fish. You also need to be careful that the one you're getting is legal.

Re: Blue Lobster #4
Thats the one,

Typical lfs misinformation, they have them down as "semi agressive" to be kept with fast moving fish...

Oh dear, think I should tell them to change they're sign, some customers not gonna be pleased when this little beast eats all they're stock...
