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, provided water is clean and clear.
Looking to add a unique and fascinating creature to your aquarium? Consider the yabbie! Freshwater Yabby is an interesting pet for an unheated tank. Yabbies are known for their hardy nature and adaptability to a range of different water conditions. Ensure a tight fitting lid is used, and provide lots of hiding places if more than one Yabby is kept in the same tank as they are very territorial.
So why wait? Add a yabbie to your aquarium today and experience the excitement and wonder of these fascinating creatures! Shop our selection now and find the perfect yabbie for your aquarium.
Please note: avoid the use of copper based treatments if invertebrates are present in the tank.
It is recommended that yabbies are kept on their own however if kept in a large aquarium with plenty of hiding spaces, multiple yabbies can co-exist.
Feed a nutritious diet formulated for yabbies in the form of sinking pellets.
Your yabbies will enjoy fruits and veggies such as carrots, zucchini, peas, spinach and most fruits. They will enjoy raw meats occasionally also.
A good filtration system is necessary to maintain water quality. Yabbies are sensitive to chlorine and other water pollutants.
Yabbies do best in cool-warm tanks (10-22°c) and are best kept alone. A thermometer is recommended to monitor the water temperature.
Artificial plants can work well in your yabby tank, as yabbies will consume live plants. Ensure plenty of caves and tunnels to hide in.
Gravel and round pebbles are good substrate for the yabbies. Alternatively, no substrate at all.
Great! Hoping to get a male and female pair now! :-)
