Porcellio dilatatus 'Giant Canyon' Isopod is a large isopod that reproduces fast and grows to just under 1" in length - these things are huge! Once established, their colony recovers quickly from harvesting, making them one of our favorite isopods for bioactive setups that are a bit more on the dry side than dart frog vivaria. They like it a bit drier than most other isopod species, allowing them to be used with a wide variety of reptile species.

Porcellio dilatatus 'Giant Canyon' Isopods make a great clean up crew in a bioactive setup or naturalistic vivarium. They are large, active, and a great clean up crew for dried vivaria, as long as humid refuges are provided. If you're looking to keep these isopods outside of a vivarium, we'd recommend keeping them on our Isopod Substrate, or even better using our Isopod Culturing Kit. Josh's Frogs MilliMix substrate is also a fantastic option.

In rare cases, starving isopods may attempt to consume the carapace of freshly molted invertebrates or even gnaw on small or delicate reptiles or amphibians. We strongly recommend providing supplemental food to your clean up crew in the enclosure, such as Josh's Frogs CUC Cuisine. When in doubt, using dwarf species of isopods, such as Dwarf Tropical Whites, may be a safer option.

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