Porcellionides pruinosus 'Powder Orange', often called Powder Orange Isopods, are a hardy species of isopod and produce quickly once established. Powder Orange Isopods make a great clean up crew in a bioactive setup or naturalistic vivarium. They are large, active, and very colorful. This species is also super fast! If you're looking to keep these isopods outside of a vivarium, we'd recommend keeping them on our Isopod Substrate, or even better using our Isopod Culturing KitJosh's Frogs MilliMix substrate is also a fantastic option.

 

In rare cases, starving isopods may attempt to consume the carapace of freshly molted invertebrates or even gnaw on small or delicate reptiles or amphibians. We strongly recommend providing supplemental food to your clean up crew in the enclosure, such as Josh's Frogs CUC Cuisine. When in doubt, using dwarf species of isopods, such as Dwarf Tropical Whites, may be a safer option.

 

Please read the following article on keeping and culturing isopods: HOW TO KEEP AND CULTURE ISOPODS

Microfauna: Isopods is a great primer blog to go over isopod husbandry and culturing basics. Isopods in the Bioactive Vivarium is focused on keeping these awesome invertebrates as clean up crews in naturalistic vivaria.
