Okay guys, I'm getting isopods! So excited but while I know a ton on crab care I'm a novice when it comes to isopods. Would love any advice and tips and setup pictures. Thank you!!!!

Pretty much similar to crabs. Calcium source, humidity, water (can drown easily) and leaf litter abd bits of vegggie scraps
