Thanks for the reminder. Its been days since I saw the one Isopod. I am probably paranormal, but I would think that I would see her again by now.

Lmbo I am always paranoid about everything. I saw her today eating from a carrot and does not have a yellow underbelly full of babies anymore. The thing I am paranoid now is about if she was never pregnant because I don’t see any isopod babies (mankai or however you spell it)
Edit: Oops, I meant paranoid. Paranormal probably came up in my autocorrect because I believe in the paranormal and talk about it

I just thought the typo was funny, like you have paranormal hermit crab/isopod senses. Or isopods make you paranormal, not sure. :lol:

Can someone provide any links for me to buy cheap bark for the isopods? I only have rocks but I feel like that may squish them.

Or are there any alternatives to bark? I have a large piece of cholla wood.

My isopods love living in the cholla wood I have with the crabs.

Rocks are fine unless you're constantly moving them around to squish them.

I went to the same place I got my other isopod, and I found 2 more adult isopods and many babies. I am happy that inbreeding problems won’t occur.

Isopods love cork bark and leaf litter too - you can pick that up at practically any pet store!! :)

Try a protein source! Some species like proteins more than others.
