New pond caretaker here. I have always been fascinated with crawfish. Now that I have a pond, I would love to have one (or a few) in the pond. How do they get along with fish, including fry, and how well do they winter-over (we live in SE Pennsylvania).

They are interesting creatures but not ideal for a pond. They will eat anything they can catch, and that includes fish.

I am not sure how they would overwinter there. Around here they burrow into the mud but it doesn't snow here. THey would probably be best kept indoors in a species only tank.

Sorry to hear that, thank you for the response.
