Default Woodlice

Anyone know where I can get some captive bred woodlice? Does anyone else use them in their set ups?

I have tropical woodlice in my tank that my T will be housed in.

you could try dartfrog.co.uk, but I don't know whether they will be captive bred or not

Are they for 'cleaning the tank'? If so, do you need to do anything other than leave them to it, like supply food or anything?

Cheers.

No, although many people keep a seperate colony in another container which is fed (bran, vegetables, leaf litter etc).

Woodlice are thought to be secondary decomposers, which means that they prefer to eat substrate that has already been attacked by fungi and "softened". They are not keen on plants with high tannin content - so Oak and beech are not great foodstuffs, although Birch and Ash (?) are usually accepted.

I am thinking about these for our T.Blondi's set up as the dirt gets pretty manky in there with the humidity and pinky juice!
