    its a type of crafish. Dwarf Orange, i think. its the acronym for the scientific name, and the O at the end is for orange, cuz its a variety of the species.

    dwarf crayfish? from what I've heard the dwarves are pretty much 100% fish-safe. they're fairly small, and seem to be somewhat more shy than their larger cousins; if they can be kept with teeny tiny shrimp, I'd be surprised to hear they cant be kept with fish.

    nice tank, though. it'll look really good once it grows in! and those shrimpies :p: wish I had a shrimp tank myself- if only the darn critters werent so small and tasty!! :(

    Yes they are dwarf crayfish very friendly!!!!! With Plants + Other fish!!!!!!

    Once and awhile it MIGHT (very rare) hurt something in your tank..

    I have 3 living in my 33 gallon community tank for a year.. nothing has gone missing or died..

    and I have 1 in this tank living with my shrimps :p

    Best crayfish ever!!! :p
