Isopod Updates

Hello Guys!
I'm happy to say that I have been seeing some babies from my Trachelipus rathkii, Porcellionides pruinosus, and both color forms of Porcellio laevis! Along with these new babies, my Cylisticus convexus have been doing exceedingly well and I have tons of mixed sized individuals from the thirty or so that I started with.
I also sterilized my rotten wood that I collected while at a nature preserve and mixed a good amount into all of my isopods' substrates, so they should enjoy that. Hopefully it provides them with some more nutrients to start kicking out some more babies! Also figure I'd share that I've taken my ten or so orange colored individuals from my T.rathkii enclosure and put them in a separate enclosure to try and isolate the orange trait.
So just some small updates but I thought I'd share them anyway.
Hope you guys enjoyed reading despite the very short length of this post, and until next time, goodbye!
