Porcellio laevis has several useful functions in the terrarium. The main one is undoubtedly the removal of all unwanted organic material, such as old and unused feed or dead insects. With a higher supply of protein, higher humidity and temperature, this species thrives very well, and within a few weeks the substrate will be filled with new isopods.
Number of pieces per one colony: 20 pcs. The size of the isopods: 0.5 - 1.0 cm.
It is not recommended to keep together with adult cockroaches - during the stripping the cockroach is motionless and defenseless, and the soft cuticle is an enticing delicacy for this species of eternally gluttonous isopods
There may also be nibbling of cockroach ootheques
