@jennybecca- We won't be able to sell isopods this year. :( We have a bajillion, but it's too cold to ship them until probably May. And our isopod shipping containers won't arrive for probably 1-2 weeks still. But other people on here that live farther south can probably hook you up with them. :)

@crys_crab They love moose poop. :) In the wild, they eat all kinds of feces...including human!! lol.

Congrats wolf! You did a great job :clap:

:hlol: best conversation ever. :P I'll have to dehydrate more poop today. My freezer is full of it. Just a tip on feeding it, you can spray it with dechlor water to rehydrate it and make it softer for the crabs. :)

The isopods aren't from here. Their range isn't this far north. I got them from bugs in cyberspace last summer. :) However, I have a female who has a color mutation and I'm trying to get colored babies from her! So maybe by next year, I will have my own "type". Her first batch of babies looks plain, but I'm going to keep trying, I think.

Oh, all orders placed yesterday before 10pm AST are going out today! My husband is working on getting the website to send out shipping notifications. :) One of those things we forgot about until now.

Mine are big fans of the birch leaves. :D I carpet the tank floor and they go nuts. :) And the carapace, I usually stick in the moss pits and they munch on it all day. It's usually gone in 1-2 weeks. Hope your crabs enjoy!! :D
