Out of stock
Product Details

The original species that revealed all the treasures that the limestone caves Thailand has to offer the isopod hobby! "Rubber ducky" started a huge sensation leading to the discovery of dozens of undescribed species. They do well in a setup with at least 3" of substrate and a substatial calcium source (limestone, cuttlebone, eggshells will do fine). Treat them like very expensive vegetable plants- offer nutritious substrate, additions such as shrimp meal, bat guano, and rotten wood. They also benefit from occasionally offering vegetable slices. As a cave species, they should have good air flow, so substantial ventilation is a must and a dead space for air to move of about 2". They need hides to crawl up off the ground, and utilize cardboard egg crates and bark whenever offered.

Due to the sensitive nature of Cubaris, they are shipped overnight only.
