Porcellionides pruinosus or Powder Orange isopods, are a hardy species that reproduces quickly once established. Powder oranges are especially fond of feces from numerous animal species. Add them to a terrarium to consume messes that you would rather not clean. In gecko tanks - rinse solid matter off walls and into the substrate with a sprayer and the isopods will do the rest! These isopods are large (for cleaners), active, colorful and extremely fast! They look peach when immature and become a beautiful powdery orange color in adulthood (hence the name!)

Armadillidium klugii, or Clown isopods, originate from the Balkans of Europe. They are most known for their distinct coloration which is said to resemble that of the Mediterranean black widow. These brightly colored isopods typically exhibit a brownish-purple color, broken by lines of yellow and white dots, skirted with a reddish orange edge. Clown isopods can be a little difficult to establish, but once the colony is thriving, they are a hardy and rewarding species to work with.

   

Clown Isopods for sale

Armadillidium klugii - Clown

Difficulty: Intermediate

Size: .82 inches.

Housing: Plastic storage bin or glass terrarium

Food Preferences: Vegetables, dried leaves, grasses, Reptanicals Isopod Feast, Reptanicals Shredded Shrimp

Temp Requirements: approx. 70 Degrees to 85 Degrees. Extreme cold and heat can be lethal. May go dormant in winter if kept in colder temps.

Breeding: Intermediate - with proper care sub-adults will begin to breed before reaching full size, but cultures can be difficult to establish. This species can take a few weeks/months to start, occasionally with a few losses to elder adults before numbers really start to show  (no it's not just you/or us/them).

Substrate: Coconut coir, peat moss, or Reptanicals Bug Bedding, slightly moist with a layer of leaf litter

Humidity: slightly humid, mist one side of enclosure to create a moisture gradient, offer a hefty area of moist moss on the "wet" side.    

Enrichment: offer various types of mosses (pillow, sheet) to serve as both snacks and hiding spaces. Cork pieces, coconut halves, and lotus pods all make great hides and climbing spaces.

     

Isopods are gaining popularity in the reptile industry for a number of very good reasons. They are natures' janitorial crews! Add them to your home enclosure to create a Bio-Active ecosystem like nature intended. Isopods reduce mold, feces, decaying matter, and improve substrate health! All while providing a calcium rich, nutritious snack for your critters to enjoy any time they wish.

Enclosure larger than 10 gallons? If you're looking to breed these isopods outside of a vivarium, we'd recommend keeping them in one of our Reptanicals Cleaner Breeder Boxes for easy care and to ensure the health of your isopods. Our kits come complete with substrate, food, moss - everything you need to culture with success!

  

Our Isopods are fed a mix of organic vegetables and mushrooms twice weekly in addition to our own Reptanicals Isopod Feast. They are kept on Reptanicals Bug Bedding, sprinkled with leaf litter. We include moist sphagnum moss to help maintain humidity, provide cuttlebone for calcium and cork hides for enrichment.

High Quality Isopod Food from Reptanicals Premium Bio-active Supplies

Don't forget to pick up our Reptanicals Isopod Feast, a great nutritionally complete diet. Use it in addition to fresh food, such as vegetables like carrots. Some isopods, if starved, can consume or chew on delicate critters. Developed by biologists, our premium protein packed blend of vitamins, minerals and nutrients make the perfect gut-loading cuisine isopods can't get enough of! 

    Don't miss out on our additional Reptanicals isopods species and products!
