Speaking from experience with these same question. To 100% identify Bill Cody will want better pics. Preferably with them on a white sheet of paper or in a jar of water and he will need to see their belly.

I'm not able to get any pics that are hosted by the forum to display. Probably temporary.

Dang, that looks like it would glow in the dark.


It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

It is likely to be a genetic flaw that happens in Papershell and Norhtern Virile craws...very rare.

Heres what I'm finding all over my yard (all around the pond). I can walk around and find One about every minute. They are full of babies. Can someone I'd these for me? I dont see alot of the big chimneys around my place like some talk about on here. I do have some that I believe have tunneled under our pool causing the liner to have low spots (not huge deal). I'm not really concerned about them more curious than anything.

A crayfish that has nothing to do with water other than what rain flows down their burrow is pretty amazing.

Rusto, I think the crayfish you are finding around the house just might be these ....

https://nature.mdc.mo.gov/discover-nature/field-guide/grassland-crayfish-prairie-crayfish



jim100, the burrow always has water or the crayfish has to move. The prairie types tend to occupy areas with an underlying hardpan. The top soils have a lot of clay but are permeable enough to support a very slow flow. Because of this, a water table of sorts lies above the hardpan after being saturated. As the table slowly dissipates, they dig deeper to stay in water. They are as you said, amazing creatures.

So it sounds kinda like they wont stick around the pond. Well I went around and picked up prolly 20 of them full of babies and put them on the ponds edge. They all took off for the water. Maybe became lunch who knows.
