Luckily, isopods aren't very picky when it comes to housing. You want a container that has some ventilation but holds humidity well. Here are some ideas:
- Acrylic display box
- Exo Terra faunarium
- Tupperware container
- Washed ice cream tub
- Exo Terra breeding box
- Plastic shoe storage box
- Glass or acrylic aquarium with lid
If the container you choose is airtight, you have two options:
- Drill or melt small holes into the lid
- Cut or melt a large opening(s) in the lid and/or side(s), then use silicone to affix screen or mesh to the opening(s)
Isopods will eventually eat their way out of a container made from any kind of wood, cardboard, or other biodegradable material.
The container can be clear or solid-colored. If it's clear, you might be able to watch more active isopod species scurry around!
