Betta132 Posted October 11, 2016 Share Posted October 11, 2016 For those unfamiliar with them, they're a large isopod. They're soft-bodied and get roughly 1" long, not counting a pair of long, jointed antennae on either end. They live along the edges of the water at beaches, especially rocky areas, but they don't actually need or like saltwater. As far as I can tell, they eat detritus and possibly algae. I imagine they could be fed the sort of nori seaweed that you can buy at grocery stores, and they'd probably take some sort of fish food. They can't climb smooth things at all, but they're fairly good at climbing rockwork and wood. They're very hard to catch if they're in among rockwork right at the edge of the waves, but if you find a large overhang somewhere with them living under it, they're very easy to knock off the overhang into a bucket. I've caught them by the dozens, but that was in California, so I couldn't take any home with me. Anyone ever tried? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
