Freshwater aquatic isopods?


Recommended Posts

I just collected some aquatic isopods from a local creek. Any tips on keeping them? Will they survive at room temperature (70-78)? I am planning on adding them to an established wild type guppy tank. It has duckweed, java moss, rocks, driftwood and leaves.

Thanks! Looks like keeping won’t be an issue. Hopefully They’ll start reproducing before they die out. I got mostly larger ones so it looks like they won’t live too much longer. And hopefully the feeder guppies don’t eat all the babies. I think I’ll add some more leaves for food and cover.
