How do I house/store my isopods?

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:

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!
