White Isopods

Trichorhina tomentosa „White Dwarf Isopods“


cosmopolitical, in all tropical areas.


18-25 °C


up to 5 mm

Social behaviour:

They can always be seen.


Very uncomplicated and a short development time of only 3 months.


Trichorhina tomentosa is mostly used as a clean up crew. They live perfectly in damp terrariums with a high humidity and are really good at cleaning up all rests. Since this kind is really tiny it’s hard to watch them in a full terrarium.

Tipp: Perfect to keep along with dendorbates since the tanks usually have the perfect conditions for white isopods, too. They also make great feeding animals for frogs.
