    Default i'm falling for isopods

    since starting the dart frog viv, i am really enjoying the isopods. i have dwarf white and purples, but i have heard the dwarf striped are slightly larger. i am ordering about 40 of those this week. i don't want to jump into the giant ones yet, but they are a cute little bug..

    Can't argue that. I keep giant oranges. They take forever to mature, but they are so worth the wait!!!

    You should check out the Dalmatian ISO's. They are awesome!

    I read somewhere on here that you can collect isopods outside, and breed 3 generations to remove any diseases. I collected probably 100 about a week ago. There housed correctly and there eating lots. Do you know roughly how long 3 generations should take? Do you believe there will be no parasites or disease left? And are the kind Id find in canada able to survive in vivs? I have a couple orange ones too. thanks

    Colleen glad you are enjoying your isopods. Dwarf whites can be prolific and dwarf striped are indeed just a bit larger and only slightly less prolific. How are your purples doing? they can require some patience.
