Rubber Ducky Isopods for sale!


Origins:
A heavily debated topic, but it is mostly believed that the original Rubber Ducky colony was found deep in a dark limestone cave in Thailand. Because of this it is very common to see enclosures with limestone and deep damp soil. Like many Cubaris species, remain shy.

Habitat: Prefer a high humidity (60-80%) tropical environment overall (70-78°F) while maintaining ventilation. Recommended substrate depth 6"+ and seem to enjoy Lotus Pods for hideouts.

Food: As with most isopod species their main source of diet should be lots of leaf litter and decaying wood. Try supplementing with organic vegetables high in carotenoids (such as pumpkin, carrot, corn, sweet peppers) and dried shrimp. Carotenoids are yellow, orange, and red pigments that are produced by certain plants and algae. These ducks appear to prefer Fish based foods.

Reproduction: (Brood size typically less than 10)
