How many crayfish can you have in a 55 gallon tank?

Asked: R i n c o n B a s s, Last Updated:

I would say 5-10 crayfish would be fine in a 55 gallon tank as long as there are no other fish in the tank. They will climb on any structure in the tank, but they cannot crawl out as long as there is nothing sticking out of the top of the tank (plants, branches, ect...)
