Hello everyone. This is one of my attempts to return to TN and hope this one works.

This picture was taken in an aquarium in the Wroclaw zoo, Poland. I have been here in Poland for a month now and have found this country to be extremely beautiful and with very friendly and helpful people. Yes... my archive is now packed with uploadable pictures :-)

About the species. These are crayfish and the furthest my research took me, I have been able to identify then as the Procambarus cubensis.

SIZE: Max 10cm
BEHAVIOR: Like most crayfish these are omnivorous and will eat plants. They show a quite aggressive behaviour and will decimate their numbers, if there is not enough room. Will eat their young.
MALES: Longer pincers, gonopods.
FEMALES: Broader tail.
REMARK: This was the first crayfish species found in the aquarium hobby in East Germany at 1980 or earlier. Began to become available in West Germany after the Reuinion.

PP - Had to increase shadow in the picture to reduce some of the light emitted by the glare of the aquarium glass.

Superb shot, Kurtz!And an apt title, too!!
Your PP has certainly worked well.
And one good turn deserves another
So welcome back, bro!!!!!!!!

ciekawe są te krewetki. Ładnie oświetlone i kolorowe zdjęcie podwodnej krainy.
Podoba mi się kompozycja i ostrość.
Ładnie udało ci się utrwalić odcienie zieleni - od pistacjowego do seledynu z dodatkiem błękitu.
Ogólnie zdjęcie robi miłe wrażenie.
Pozdrawiam i dziękuję

Hello Kirti, a superb and funny:) capture of these aquarium crustaceans. tfs and greetings,

Hi Kirti, great situation for this couple, wonderful composition with splendid light and good details, very well done, ciao Silvio

Ciao Kirti,
bentornato con una splendida immagine in acquario, eccellenti POV e composizione, straordinaria definizione, ottima esposizione con una buona resa delle tonalitą dei colori.

Thanks for your comment on my recent picture, Kirti.
Good to hear from you after a long time.
The image is, ideed, good to look at. However, what these two creatures inside the aquarium are is beyond me. A little info on them could have helped.
While you are in Poland at this time of the year, I would expect you to go for landscapes that characterize the country gradually heading for winters.
Thanks and all the best.

Hi Kirti,
A nice capture of these beautiful shrimps. Very well composed with sharp details. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Superb shot wonderful composition with splendid light.

Hi Kirti, welcome back my bro. This is a funny shot these crayfishes becomed obstinate like capricorns:) TFS this lovely capture.


Hello Kirti,
Do you know if this was a fresh water aquarium?
This phot is very interesyting to me,because we have small fresh water crayfish here in New Zealand.
In fact,I have some in the stream at the bottom of my garden.
They look very similar to this,but interestingly are more closely related to lobsters than true crayfish.
Despite only being a few inches long,they were a favourite food of the Maori people and are called Koura.

Hi Kirti,
that's wonderful, I love that moment, also very good sharpness and nice light, thanks

Nicely taken... the crayfish actually look like they are in a fence-fight! Love the colors in this pic.
