Additional Comments

Various blue forms of Yabby naturally occur including the Electric Blue Yabby. At first light blue, the colour of these yabbies intensifies to bright blue as they grow. Full colour is usually attained at around 10-12cm. An interesting pet for the unheated tank. Ensure a tight fitting cover glass is used, and provide some hiding places if more than one Yabby is kept in the same tank.
