  1. I've read that fresh peanut butter will glow under a black light too! But I've yet to test it out. It seems that at least one Cubaris species will glow too: (Cubaris sp. ‘Blonde Rubber Ducky’ from dartknightexotics reddit page)
  2. I just found out that some isopods will glow under UV light! (Trichorhina tomentosa pictured, from dartknightexotics.com) Are there any other species that do this???
  3. It's funny that you ask . . . I was just researching about them today! Check this: http://shrimpkeep.com/asellus-aquaticus-care-sheet/ If you take any photos, please post them here!
  4. Are you keeping any of these isopods? Oniscus asellus 'BC Maple' Porcellio Scaber ‘Lemonade’ Porcellio Scaber ‘Orange Embers’ Armadillidium vulgare "Orange Vigor" There seems to be limited information and photos of them.
  5. Wow . . . somehow I missed this! Super job, thanks for posting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This should be a "sticky"!
  6. Bump away! I'm always open to people "digging up" my old threads. More so, if they are still relevant or useful. But yes, I used both caffeinated leaves (black tea) and non-caffeinated leaves (green tea, mint tea, hibiscus tea, etc.). Both were eaten, no ill effects noticed. Hope that helps!
  7. Roaches are tough as nails . . . But I pretty much agree . . . was just pointing it out ya know. 🙂
  8. Well . . . mealworms can eat styrofoam without problems. Check out this link: https://www.intelligentliving.co/styrofoam-eating-mealworms-absorb-toxic-additive/ and look up some info yourself, there's a bunch of info about mealworms and styrofoam. Good Luck! :D
  9. I second the above statement. Here are some photos:
  10. Thanks for posting the photo! Looks like there's a good amount of variation in the hybrids, that leans toward one adult parent or the other, with some being in between.
  11. That would make sense, since they like dryer conditions. Thanks again!
  12. You know . . . that's something I wouldn't have thought of! Thanks for that Hisserdude! What is their natural habitat anyway? Are they cave dwellers?
  13. I have a small breeding group of Porcellio hoffmannseggi, maybe about 50 in all. They have been doing fine for several months, but now, about once a week I find one or two dead on their backs. I recently found one dying, kept flipping over. The dead (or dying ones) are a little discolored (cream instead of white edges). This happens to large adults and medium sized juveniles, I haven't seen it with smaller ones. They have a screen lid, substrate is Coco Coir, about 25% of the sweater box size container is kept moist. I feed them something moist (beetle jelly, or veggies), fish
  14. That's hilarious! Thanks Orin. 😁
