Acro Posted June 25, 2020 Share Posted June 25, 2020 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 food, reptile calcium powder. They have dead hardwood leaves and dead sphagnum moss. There is cork bark and a few other wood pieces in there. What do you think needs fixing? My current guess, is maybe drier substrate and/or more food (I often find they have eaten all their food, while my other isopod species have a little left over). I don't want to slowly lose my whole Porcellio hoffmannseggi colony! Please help! 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
