Default Dwarf Crayfish with Axolotls

I have some Dwarf Crayfish ( non aggressive max size 1.5 inch) Would the Axolotls eat them?

I also have a self cloning crayfish (non aggressive) that reproduces quickly it grows to a max size of 3 inches Would that be a good tank mate or a good food source?


Thanks for the info

1.5 inches is big enough to do some damage, I would remove them. and def. not the 3 incher

i had cray fish my self
i say its very bad idea i had crayfish mixed with crabs and fish(fresh water crabs 3 cm long around one inch)
in the end everything besides the crayfish everything was cut like an paper puzzel
and i know axolotls can regenerate everything but still not an idea thats good for your axies health
