Isopod starter cultures


Isopod starter cultures for use in bio-active setups or for use as feeders.

Benefits of including isopods in your clean-up crew of micro fauna include:

  • Eat leftover food as well as decaying leaves and timber in a naturalistic enclosure.
  • Supplementary food source, your pet may be able to go longer between feeds
  • Speeding up decomposition promoting a better environment for the growth of plants

Each culture will contain several adults, juveniles and babies.

For best results grow the culture out for 2-3 weeks before tipping into 2 enclosures.  Or half into one and refill with substrate for ongoing usage.
