    Cleaner crews for assassins

    They will eat the isopods after a few days or so unless the assassubs aren't eating due to molting or previous feeding.

    You should get a male tiger hisser then. They look amazing.

    2 questions

    I think you could check on them all the time without causing a problem unless you physically harm them by dropping, smashing, etc.

    Hybridization?

    It is a very big island and they do not fly.

    B giganteus

    This species never does as well as the smaller ones in the genus which is why it usually costs quite a bit more (still just a few bucks). In my experience small numbers are caused by less than regular care or trading off too many.

    Deaths Head advice?

    If you keep adults below 72F you'll probably never see a nymph but they can grow at cooler temps. Like Blaberus giganteus, some adults die within a day of molting. It is one of the best species! Good luck.

    Porcellio silvestrii

    I've only seen maybe 30 adults and on those the males were always orange and the females gray. On the pictures in this thread the male is the orange one. I'm curious how often the colors don't match genders on Alan's stock.

    Porcellio silvestrii

    I thought the orange were the males? (At least on adults I've seen - compare the uropods)

    Anyone tried aquatic isopods?

    I had a massive colony for a few years and then they died out.

    I have often wondered if I'll still enjoy my inverts when my eyesight is gone or nearly so. Glad to hear you're enjoying them.
  12. They may be smaller than you think and they are difficult to contain. I use a deli-cup with a screen lid for the culture.

    Pallids not producing

    I don't think adult female pallids produce young in less than six weeks, let alone two. How many adult female's do you have?

    Blaberus giganteus is a very neat one.

    Blaberus question?

    Blaberus fusca.

    Oniscus asellus temperature

    That will work.

    Anyone raise Paratemnopteryx couloniana?

    I have a rather old but very small culture. I use them to feed amblypygids now and then.

    Question about starting an isopod colony

    Are you looking to rear feeders, cleaners, or pets?

    Pepper roach mystery deaths

    I've never used an oak leaf so that can't be it.

    Armadillidium sp. "Montenegro" and Androniscus dentiger care?

    I get the FB notifications for the isopod group and classifieds and haven't noticed anyone in the US selling them.

    Oniscus asellus "Mardi Gras Dalmatian"

    Very nice looking critters. Dalmatian might not be the best name since they have yellow spots too. I picked up some pied convexus and they've had hundreds of babies and every single one looks normal.

    Armadillidium sp. "Montenegro" and Androniscus dentiger care?

    That doesn't sound bad to me. Can you PM me where to get them?
  23. Allpet Roaches

    Should I get lobster?

    It depends what you're feeding but it's always nice to have an extra colony.
