So I have been researching beetles, and pill millipedes have always been that species that I would love to have but never will because of the issues they have surviving in captivity (talking about the giant species across the way from the states). But I am wondering what people have done to try and make them survive? I have read about certain species of beetles needing kinshi to help them provide good bacteria in their gut in many ways and help them break down their food... Well has anyone actually tried this with pill millipedes, and actually making a species specific one? If not I would be willing to try after I learn to make a simpler kinshi for just easier stag beetles....? I wouldn't touch the giant emerald species unless it went really well with the tanzanian species. But in my opinion, if you get wood geared to where they come from, and innoculate with mushrooms that they would likely eat where they are from... well if no one has tried it I don't see why it might not work to help jump start the bacteria in their stomachs again. It's just like providing probiotics/prebiotics for us.
