It is pretty quiet so I'll throw something out there. About a month ago while seining in Rochester NY I picked up a small, barely two inch long crayfish carrying eggs. I put her in a livebearer trap with slits in the bottom in a spare 10 gallon tank hoping the little ones when hatched would escape into the tank. Three days ago I noticed the eggs were gone and the tank was crawling with minuscule crayfish. The plan was to use them for live fish food but they're so cute. So I gave one to a lady at work, she loves him already and the rest will be darter and sunfish food. The little buggers seem to grow really fast as they've doubled in size in three days. A bonus is the water was unfiltered and is also developing a nice crop of rotifers.
