P. scaber Dalmatian Isopods (10)

There are several different forms of Porcellio scaber. These cute little black spot on white background isopods are one of the most popular.   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.    

Our Isopods are eligible for our FedEx 2day Flat Rate shipping!  We charge $9 for this service, and you can add other isopods to the box.  Once you've added the third item the shipping jumps to $13 but after that you can add as many isopods, springtails or eligible plants as you like.  

Please keep in mind that depending on weather conditions you may need to have your isopods held for pickup at a local FedEx location, or have your order shipped via overnight service.  We may contact you and suggest one of these options if we feel that your shipment is not able to be shipped safely with your selected form of shipping.  While the cart defaults to the flat rate shipping, you can change this in the check out process.
