ok, get a ten gallon tank, fill it with fresh water, they donít live in salt water. Give them some gravel and places to hide like caves. They eat fish food, shrimp pellets, blood worms, algea wafers, etc. Once you establish them in the tank just watch them because they can be cannibalistic, or they can breed. Itís best to have them separated if possible, but since your kind of pressed for time that can wait for now.

crayfish really only eat bactearia and they are freshwater i should know because i go to a pond every once in a while and catch them by flipping rocks. i have crayfish bigger than my own turtle so i keep my turtle with my sisters turtle.
