    I'll be adding a lot more when I have time. I just thought I would share some of my favorite species in my collection.

    Thanks. I'm adding more now. I just had to stop to do something. I have over 100 species so they won't all make the cut lol.

    Thank you. That's nothing.
    I do sell and trade these if you're ever interested let me know. I can't post in the sale/trade section yet or can't figure it out or I would have my available list there.

    Unfortunately I'm in another country so I can't buy from you :-(.

    Where are you located? I know a few sellers in the UK and Spain that sell. That's where I got a lot of my more exotic species.

    I have tons of lol. It just takes a long time to upload them from my phone.
    Here's my rubber duckies and blonde duckies. I love these and they are much easier to keep and breed then I've been told. At least in my opinion. Though I have been keeping isopods for about 3 years and have close to 100 different species.

    Those are some awesome isopods you have there. If this is who I think it is, hopefully some of those pods will be heading my way in the future.

    That's a magnificent collection. Do you have a top/fav 5 for those of us that want to add another couple of species?

    Yes sir... I didn't know you were on here.

    As to the last question that would be all my option.
    Armadillidium vulgare are still one of my top favorite species. It still amazes me all the different colors they can be even though they are the most common.
    Armadillidium gestroi for sure one of my favorites.
    Cubaris sp. "red tigers" are very beautiful. I'm hoping to get more tigers soon. And of course I love my OG Cubaris sp. "rubber duckies"
    How could I not love the Cubaris sp. "blonde duckies". I was happy to get these now that they are extinct in the wild. At least they will live on in the hobby.
    Any Porcellio haasi, Porcellio expansus, Porcellio ornatus "high yellow and white skirt". I could go on and on. They are all very unique in their own way.

    Wait, Blond Duckies are extinct in the wild? How did that happen?

    Thanks,

    I'm not sure on the exact details but the cave they were discovered in was destroyed to make some kind of factory or a building of some sort.

    Beautiful photos.

    I would actually like to start with my own colony since we have isopods outside the house.

    Can you share any beginner tips, anything i should or should not do? Food source, enclosure size and content etc.

    Would be appreciated :D
