Dwarf crayfish are native to Mexico and the southern United states. They primarily inhabit streams and small rivers, though they can also be found in ponds and lakes. They tend to prefer slow moving waters, and are mostly found in the shallows.
They remain relatively small in the home aquarium, and the largest species of dwarf crayfish will only grow to about 2 inches (5 cm) in length. On average, they live two to three years in captivity, though there have been recorded instances of them living longer.
