We Have A Few Crayfish,

in one of our aquariums,

that are collectively known under the name of yabbys, but now a different specie has been found by a German scientist named Christian Lukhaup who found it in Hoa Creek, West Papua, Indonesia, it is named Cherax pulcher, the latter term is related to the Latin adjective for 'beautiful' and as crayfish go it certainly is, I wonder if some enterprising aquarist will breed this crayfish and make it available to the aquatic trade?
