What are candy crush isopods?

Candy crush isopods are a natural color variation of a widespread isopod called the Plum Woodlouse (Porcellionides pruinosus). They’re a mixture of slate blue and rusty-orange with a powdery white “coating.”

Candy crush isopods are prolific and one of the hardiest isopods cultivated in captivity. They make a great clean-up crew for any bio-active enclosure, from arid to tropical.

They can leave the leaf litter layer to consume organic matter slightly above the ground level, making them a decent choice for arboreal set-ups.

Given their larger size, they’re capable of nibbling at soft-skinned pets, like amphibians and small geckos. Offer your clean-up crew high protein snacks, and keep an eye on the population if you're concerned about that.
