    Isopod groups tend to be more visible when they get to have large cultures, until then it's fairly rare to see them in my experience

    The most active species in my experience is Porcelliio laevis "dairy cow"

    Porcellio flavomarginatus is supposedly quite active.

    Excellent choice, one of my favorite isopods...hard to heat in terms of activity, appearance, and production.
