  1. Yeah I'm not sure, the middle one does have a black spot though and these at lighter than my others by a good amount who knows, most isopod morphs are recessive anyway
  2. One of the larger juveniles yet also one of the lightest in the culture.
  3. Here is a close up of what I discovered to be a dark pigmented spot that showed up on another light isopod, I did flip it over to check if it was Dirt and gently swabbed the spot on both sides, definitely part of the coloration.
  4. Here is an abnormally light animal especially near the front, I'm not 100% certain they will become like my adult but I know they were darker a few molts ago.
  5. Update on my culture, the isopods all developed normal color resembling normal colored adults up until around 1/2 the length of an adult when around half of them began showing abnormalities, I have now noticed every molt they lose pigmentation and some have gained maybe 2 or 3 black spots and I also have some specimens who are very light grey especially towards the front half of the body. If all now oddly colored specimens keeps developing like this they could resemble my original female in a few molts. This could also mean these aren't the same gene but instead have a different one with similar end result. I will keep everyone updated.
  6. Notes taken, I have some softer crumbly oaks and maples and soft wood I've been rotting for beetle larvae. The live oak litter was made available for now as my hissers, glowspots and even hermit crabs eat the stuff at an alarming rate but I will offer some softer stuff for sure!
  7. Exactly my thoughts the one that molted is so much bigger after last molt and the other looks to have a molt coming soon, once it molts out I will move them up into something nicer!
  8. Well my orange head colony ate a chicken leg in a day when it was at its strongest. I still have a lot in just waiting for this generation of nymphs to mature I've got a ton of big female nymphs almost ready but few mature ones.
  9. I offered a little orange along with the standard leaf litter and they took a nibble, pics on the way
  10. Sand was a consideration because it stiffens up the substrate if added in small portions I've observed but yep not adding any due to them thriving on coir before I got them and it clearly working for others, no need to fix what isn't broken!
  11. So I thinned out the substrate, it's still just coir for now but how do you guys think this looks.
  12. Got it seems pretty simple, I will lower the sub down and possibly add a very small amount of sand so help the substrate hold it's shape as I have heard it helps. I figured they would be fine together as roaches are social just wanted to assure it wouldn't increase risk of a bad molt.
