What makes Zoosphaerium neptunus so hard to keep? I hear they're super hard to keep alive. Anybody have experience in raising these?
I keep Arthrosphaera cf. brandtii. They seem to be sensitive to shipping stress, that's probably what killed most of mine, but if they survive that, they are not that difficult to keep. I have two left, I've had one for 1,5 years and the other for 9 months. I keep them at room temp like my other pedes and even witnessed some mating behavior in summer.From what I've heard, the Tanzanian species are a bit more hardy, but I think that's probably just relative to those from Madagascar.
