They establish quickly in a vivarium, and will act as janitors to keep the vivarium clean, as well as a snack that provides a natural calcium boost. They are native to Costa Rica. Our isopods are fed Iso-licious Isopod Food 1-2x a week, including wet mixes, supplemented with potatoes, squash, carrots, our leaf powder, and really enjoy banana peels as their number one source of food.
