You will receive 10 isopods from an established colony.
This is one of the most beautiful isopod species in the hobby and a must for any serious hobbyists.
As with most European species, good ventilation is a must.The enclosure cover is cut-out, covered with wire mesh to prevent outsiders fromentering your colony. You can also cut out the top-side of the encolusure if this is what works for your set-up.
About 1/4 of substrate is moist, the rest is bone-dry. With that said, please keep in mind that they must always have a moist corner to retreat to; all isopods are crustaceans after all 🙂
Green leafy vegetables such as cabbage, swiss chard, squash,zucchini, and some fruits occassionally – I only feed them the organic kind. Provide protein and source of calcium also. Cuttlefish bone and leaf litter is a must.
