Dwarf crawfish eat just about anything but fish. They are good at nibbling
plants. I agree with the fact they love baby brine, even adults do. The
young in my tanks also gobbled up large quantities of true green algae, the
kind that looks like cotton. They are great scavengers for tanks with small
fish, since they leave fish alone. I have had only two instances where they
ate the viscera out of dead minnows. I think these were very hungry though.
Combined with snails, they are a great clean up crew.
