Dwarf Purple Isopods (Isopoda sp.) are one of the most popular species of isopods for poison dart frog vivaria and other bioactive setups. They reproduce very quickly, and are a great isopod to seed your vivarium with. We also recommend using the starter culture to start a larger culture. These are the original isopod in the dart frog hobby, and were originally called Jungle micropods.


You will receive an 8 oz container with 25+ Dwarf Purple Isopods, along with enough substrate and food to keep them going for a couple weeks.
