Hey everyone! Just updated my closet and added a shelf for the millipedes. New labels and stuff on each one enclosure as well so I thought I’d share and see what you guys think 😀

Current species list is:
- Hiltonius hebes
- Trigoniulus corallinus
- Archispirostreptus gigas
- Trigoniulus macropygus
- Polydesmus angustus
- Chicobolus spinigerus
- Apeuthes sp. (Thai Rainbows)
- Centrobolus splendidus
- Brachybe lecontii
- Spirobolellus sp. Maui
- Orthoporus ornatus (Brown & Gold Phases)
- Glomeris pulchra

And as some of you may know... I’m in the process of trying to get more lol

Let me know what you think about my setup!

By the way the shelf isn’t buckling the bins aren’t heavy it’s just warped from having a ton of useless stuff on it over 15 years 😂😂

Looking good! You do know you can't just show us bins without also showings us what's inside the bins, right ;)?

Thanks for sharing,

I know! I was thinking that when I uploaded it because I was proud of the organization but I wouldn’t want to be on the other side and left guessing like that 😂😂

This is a picture of my A. gigas today, they’re still young:

And my C. splendidus:

I have more C. splendidus but the two A. gigas are the only ones I have of that particular species.

I should’ve taken more pictures today, I’ll go through and get some better photos and post a part two to this thread soon 😂😂 thanks for checking it out!

G. pulchra came from @Elytra and Antenna and they’re doing good but not thriving because I made a few early care mistakes, but nothing that most keepers would do. The mistakes were entirely related to a stressful period I had in my life so I couldn’t do some basic maintenance over a long period of time. Anyway they’re doing much better now though!

No albino Narceus or Glomeris pustulata on your list? What species are you working on getting? I'd be interested in Centrobolus if you get them going.

Neither of those on the list yet 🙁 but I’m definitely interested in the albino Narceus. As a kid I was trying to be a mad scientist and I thought I could create genetically modified strawberries and raise millipedes under blacklight in order to make them albino over multiple generations 😂😂 oh how things have changed. I’m working on getting Miami Chicobolus spinigerus and some different polydesmids. Should have Centrobolus splendidus offspring soon they’re adults now and doing great 👍🏼 I’d love to work something out w/ you

Chicobolus spinigerus Miami are awesome. Mine are growing like crazy. I love to watch their color progression. Alan catches some awesome invertebrates.

Are the Chicobolus spinigerus Miami the same as Ebony? They look the same in the photos I have seen. I have Salmon and Purple. Pretty awesome color morphs. Albino Narceus americanus are such beautiful creatures. Love them.

I agree with @The Odd Pet about the Miami and Ebony morphs of Chicobolus spinigerus, I've wanted the purple ones myself but haven't gotten them! Albino millipedes were a dream of mine while I was growing up, definitely one of the greatest discoveries I've been able to get my hands on in my adult life.

I lost all my albino Narceus americanus to isopods 😔. I really want them again.

Me and Alan compared them and it turns out Miami have black legs and BPK/ebony have pink legs. He says ebony have a purple shine to them but I don't see it mine.

My ebony have very tiny white lines inbetween each segment.

Also I had sent you a message. I wasn't sure if you got it only because I haven't gotten a reply.
Thank you
