Hey everyone. This is my first time posting in this section of the forums. My hubby and I got a crayfish recently. It has white wiggly worm looking things all over its head. I found one website that said to add salt to the tank. I did that and it seemed to kill a lot of them, but they are coming back now and I did not remove the salt from the tank. Should I add more? Is there any other kind of parasite medication for crayfish???

Also, how often do they shed?

OH MY GOSH! It is so weird I just asked how often they shed and then I went to go look at mine in the tank and his shell was all off! Wow! That is so cool! (can you tell Ive never had one before?)

So anyway I found a website that said to salt the water and that should help with the parasites. It also said that after they "molt" to take out the shell, change the water, and add salt again if there are still parasites.....which I did. The parasites in his head appear to be gone but now I see them in his legs and claws. Is there anything else I should be doing???

PS I cant believe how big his claws got! Wow so cool
