I always look forward to an update on this epic and interesting thread, but this is a sad one :-( I'm very sorry you've lost this groovy millipede.

I saw one of my S. argus juvies on the surface for the first time - it was just looking for a new place to hide, lol. It looked bigger, so it's been busy molting.

My little A. gigas is growing up :rolleyes:

I have a pair of adults about 10" and they still haven't bred for me. I have a younger pair about 7" also. I'm upgrading them to a 25 gallon tank tonight. I'm thinking about putting a low watt UTH on the back at the top with a thermostat to try and get them to breed.

I used to see my A. gigas maybe twice a year and he was very sensitive to light, but lately he's been out every day. I think I should name him...

I finally got my giant blue millipedes and flame legs. They are so beautiful in person. Hopefully I get them to breed. There isn't much info on keeping the giant blue millipedes. I'm hoping the same as my A. gigas. I saw all 4 of my gigas out at the same time yesterday for the first time also. One really liked getting her picture taken also. I have to get some pics of my Orthoporus ornatus gold and chocolate.

That S. argus is very vibrant. Beautiful pics. I actually am getting some Spirostreptidae sp. 8. I wish I could find some of those S. argus.
AGB & Spiro species 8 = my favorites! I'm not sure we have species 8 on my side of the puddle. At least not identified. I also like Globular (species 1) and Ivories!

S. argus. These guys haven't touched their supplemental food before, so this was a nice surprise.

Hey I've have been messaging you to see if you still wanted to make a trade. Glad to see your back and OK.

I love when mushrooms start popping up. Have you ever put live plants in with your millipedes? I would love to have some but I don't know what is safe. I figured as long as they are in pots the roots shouldn't be an issue. I've been putting chia seeds in with them as food but really like how it looks when they sprout in my A. gigas and Florida ivories tank. I have been thinking about trying Creeping Jenny with some small species. I don't want to take the risk with my adult gigas.
