Diurnal isopods?

Recommended Posts

Are there any isopods that can be seen out and about when their enclosure is lit by ambient room light? I'd really like to set up an itty-bitty isopod vivarium for display purposes, maybe even something multi-layered to look like the inside of a fallen log, and I'd like to be able to actually see the lil guys. Could probably set up something really cool-looking with cork bark as structure and actual rotting wood as food.

Most species are rather secretive, even the more active Spanish isopods. Like Allpet roaches suggested, if you make it so that their only hides are ones that are pressed up against the enclosure walls, you'll always be able to see them. :)
