Hello All,

I was wondering if anyone here has had any experience feeding their maculosus crawfish, muscles or any other molluscs?

I have been contemplating trying de-clawed crawfish and snails but I thought I would ask and see what others have had success with. Thanks

-Michael

Necturus will definitely eat both. Large crayfish who still have claws can hold their own, but smaller ones will get eaten. Snails are also eaten and the shells passed with no problems that I've ever heard about.
