Sow bugs or springtails will not disturb them. BIC sells them. I wouldn't put cockroaches in there with them.
Do you keep it outside raised above the ground with limited substrate to eliminate temperature buffering?For your first question: I've had a Bumblebee for a few months now (and living in Florida) the temperature has ranged from the low 90s to upper 50s and my pede is still doing just fine.
I already have some Armadilidium in there. Why isn't it a good idea? Will they harm my millipedes?I personally observed a 50 gallon-long terrarium at a local botanical garden around 2004 with a hundred or more captive bred AGBs and a hundred or more Blaberus giganteus. The keeper said they had been together for years and there was no question the AGBs which were mostly half-grown had of course grown up in there. Overcrowding is relative to the cage and animals and is likely to occur more rapidly with multiple species. Considering the only 'designer' isopod lines are mine I'd have the least interest in bashing isopod use with any animal but I would strongly suggest hobbyists not put them with millipedes.
