Dear friends,

I´ve decided to create a thread focused on my isopoda collection, which currently considers of more than 60 different kinds. Keeping and breeding crustaceans of Isopoda group has become very popular and it is not surprising due its incredible morphological and color variability.
I will try to take a photo of the most of my collection and keep this thread updated. If you have any questions do not bother me to ask.
Enjoy keeping isopods!

What an impressive collection. And those shots are amazing.

I wish I could find somewhere selling Rubber Duckies, I seem to miss them whenever they are offered.

What are you doing to get your isopods to breed so well? I'd like to see if I can replicate your success :).

Thanks,
