Porcellio Scaber, "White Out" Isopods (10)

The White Out isopod is a pure white form of Porcellio scaber.  No color at all on these! Scaber are fairly fast breeders and tolerate a wide range of conditions, so this is a simple isopod to keep and breed.  If you look around you will quickly see that many people recommend against keeping scaber with animals like dart frogs, since if they are hungry they are reported to be capable of taking down small soft bodied vertebrates....like a dart frog! So, in an abundance of caution you should probably avoid keeping them with dart frogs.  

As usual I'd suggest using the isopods that you recieve to setup a culture outside the tank, and then add them to your tank as you have them to spare.  Depending on how well things go for the isopods, just putting a couple of dozen in a tank may not result in a long term colony, if the frogs eat them more rapidly then the isopods can reproduce you will run out sooner or later.  However if you set them up in a shoebox or sweaterbox, they will produce a lot of isopods in a short time, and in a few weeks or so you should have all the isopods you could want.  

This offering is for 10 isopods, mixed sizes.    

While all our isopods are eligible to be shipped via our “Flat Rate 2nd Day” FedEx shipping option, I’ve found that under all but the most ideal conditions, 2nd Day shipping is risky.  Going forward, Isopod orders must be shipped via FedEx Overnight shipping to receive a live arrival guarantee.  In addition, having the package held at a FedEx location may also be required, at my discretion, in which case I’ll notify you where the package is being held.  You will need to pickup the package within two hours of arrival unless otherwise arranged.

To keep shipping costs reasonable, I’m offering an add on shipping upgrade. So, here is how to get this cheaper overnight shipping option for your order.  Please follow these directions!  First, add your isopods to the cart, and then make sure that the second day flat rate option is checked, and no other shipping options are checked.  If you have other non isopod items in your cart, you should select the additional shipping option appropriate for that item, or if you need help, contact me. 

Now go back to the isopod listings and select the “FedEx Overnight Shipping Upgrade” option, it should appear at the end of the listings for the isopods, and add it to your cart.  You are all set, you’ll get either standard or priority overnight shipping to your location or the nearest FedEx facility at the low cost of $25 total!  Alternatively send me a message with the items you wish to purchase and I’ll send you back a cost breakdown and a link to make payment! 

In the event of an issue please contact us as soon as possible.  Replacement is the sole remedy for live arrival issues, shipping for replacement orders is the responsibility of the buyer.
