    I have a Texas Gold millipede in an enclosure along with some isopods as a clean up crew. I wonder has anyone tried putting superworm beetles in an enclosure with other inverts as a clean up crew? Would the superworm beetles bother the millipedes if they go through molt?

    I've not tried it, but given how many people complain about their superworms eating each other, it's not something I'd want to try. I don't use woodlice with millipedes either. Millipedes are a helpless snack when they moult, so it's risky to add anything that likes easy protein.

    Ah I see. That was my main fear, having my millipede go through a molt and then find out that it got gnawed on xD
