About This Product

LIVE ARRIVAL GUARANTEED if your temps fall within our LAG (read here). Please check your temps before ordering!

**If Isopods experience a rough transit and do not survive their trip to you, the container will often appear empty or shorted as they disintegrate and disappear. If this happens, please contact [email protected]**

Dwarf Tropical White Isopods (Trichorhina tomentosa) are the most popular species of isopods for poison dart frog vivaria and other bioactive setups. They reproduce quickly, and are a great isopod to seed your vivarium with. We also recommend using the starter culture to start a larger culture. 

You will receive a 4 oz container with 25+ Dwarf Tropical White Isopods, along with enough substrate and food to keep them going for a couple weeks. Each culture will seed up to a 29g / 18x18 size tank. For larger enclosures, allow the clean up crew a month to grow in the enclosure before adding more, or purchase more cultures.

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

Great Experience!!

I ordered these not long ago for my Crested Gecko's Bioactive setup, and when they came in they were perfect! I didn't see a single passed specimen, and they thrived in my setup. I haven't seen them since they're so small, and I'm getting more from this site.10/10 would recommend!

I ordered these for my Pacmans enclosure and they all came to me alive and well. I did not see a single DOA one. They all adjusted well to the cage and are doing great, so far. They were also packaged well to avoid being tossed around in shipping.

well shipped

They ship these better than Critters Direct, no worry about your isopods drowning. They were shipped in soil and all arrived alive. I live in Florida and can always count on Josh's because they care.
