Dwarf White Isopods For Sale

The most common isopod species used in vivaria for poison dart frogs and other bioactive setups are tropical white isopods. They serve as a cleaning crew, consuming decaying plant waste, fungi, and anything else that makes your enclosure appear unclean, but they also provide as an additional source of food for small animals.

Habitat

When looking into the history of dwarf white isopods. We came to the conclusion that most websites simply make up information about origins, most commonly using the terms “North and South America” or “Origin Debated” due to widespread distribution.

We spent some time tracing this species’ evolutionary history. It has occasionally been rediscovered throughout history. On a research cruise to the Galapagos Islands in 1893, one of the world’s earliest invertebrate zoologists, Gustave Budde-Lund, made the initial discovery of this species. The species’ original range was in South America, but today it can be found in temperate and tropical areas all over the world.

Humidity

In environments with high to moderate humidity, dwarf white isopods flourish. Even though they can survive much warmer and colder than those stated, they prefer temperatures between 70 and 85 degrees. This species enjoys hiding behind a thick layer of leaf litter and decomposing material.

Adult Size: 1-5 mm
