 Crayfish help

i just got some crayfish and had a few questions-
1.Do they breath threw there gills?or come up for air?
2.Do they taste good, lol just kidding.
3.What temp should i have them at(right now they are at room temp)
4.Do they need a land section?
5.I fed them dead fish but they have not eat it, is it because it floated, does it have to sink?
6.Anything else i should know about them?

Chris thanks in advance

1. They breath through their gills underwater
2. I wouldn’t know
3. Room temp is perfect
4. They don’t need land, but they could come out and just kind of hang out if land is available for them
5. They do need it to sink to be able to get it, you could feed pellets, fish flakes, blood worms, algae disks, and shrimp pellets too.
6. Make sure they can’t get out of the tank in any way (up the filter, climbing up ornaments, etc. you’ll never find it once it makes it out of the tank and into your house). Also know that they can be cannabalistic, so if you have some in one tank, in a while it might only be one in that tank. Or they might breed, but it depends how big they are. More likely is that they’ll eat eachother.
