Sizing guide
Mermaid Pe arls are a mix of Cubaris murina in various colorations, consisting of Little Sea, Papaya, Glacier, Florida Orange and Anemone isopods.

Each culture will come with at least 2 per color morph, and will be pulled from separate colonies instead of an already-mixed bin. This is a wonderful opportunity to play with new possible outcomes in morphs as they are all the same species.

This species of isopod is still somewhat new to isopod enthusiasts and bioactive hobbyists alike. However, they have quickly proven to be just as effective as Porcellionides pruinosus (ie. Powder Blues) when it comes to acting as a clean up crew and breeding swiftly.

Cubaris murina also thrive in both arid and tropical environments, making them an awesome beginner isopod.

Though they have a harder exterior making them not ideal as a feeder isopod.

Name coined by fellow isopod breeder Laura Riepl, owner of Smug Bug.
 

IMPORTANT PLEASE READ: Each culture ships guaranteed to have at least the selected amount of isopods, and typically with at least 1-2 extra every time.
The moment you receive your isopods, they will be ready to introduce into your bioactive setup. 

We ship our isopods along with sphagnum moss in securely packed containers. Their package will include insulation, heat, cold, or phase packs dependent on the temperatures observed in your area at the time of delivery.


We will ship as long as temperatures are steady between 40-90º.
Customers experiencing temperatures under 50º over 80º will be encouraged to be held for pickup.
Customers experiencing temperatures under 40º or over 90º will be encouraged to let us hold your order until it's safe to ship.
We will never ship an order out in questionable temperatures without communicating with you first.
