Porcellionides pruinosus or Powder Blue isopods, are a hardy species that reproduces quickly once established. Powder Blues are especially fond of leftover cricket legs and mealworm sheds. Add them to a terrarium with messy eaters that don't finish all their food. These isopods are large (for cleaners), active, colorful and extremely fast! They look grey when immature and become a beautiful powdery blue color in adulthood (hence the name!)

Enclosure larger than 10 gallons? If you're looking to breed these isopods outside of a vivarium, we'd recommend keeping them in one of our Reptanicals Cleaner Breeder Boxes for easy care and to ensure the health of your isopods. Our kits come complete from substrate, food, everything you need to culture with success!
