Porcellionides pruinosus 'Powder Orange'

10 count


Porcellionides pruinosus is one of the most popular isopods. Easy to keep, fast to reproduce, soft bodied, very active and they even make a great clean up crew! Give them a humid enclosure or a spot in a pet’s enclosure where they can retreat to high humidity and these guys will thrive. Porcellionides pruinosus is the preferred clean up crew for most bioactive enclosures.

Porcellionides pruinosus should be given lots of leaf litter to consume. Vegetables like carrot, squash and cucumber may be provided. They also appreciate small amounts of protein; this is most easily achieved with high quality fish food or dried fish/insects. A calcium source should also be provided (eggshell, calcium supplements, cuttlebone, etc.).

Another fantastic option is Repashy Bug Burger or Morning Wood. Using these as a food source contains all the important vitamins, minerals, proteins, and cellulose isopods crave. But don’t skimp on the leaf litter.
