As a hardy species of isopod, Porcellionides pruinosus ‘Powder Orange’ produces quickly. In a bioactive setup or naturalistic vivarium, powder orange isopods make great cleaners. Their activity, size, and color make them very appealing. Additionally, this species moves extremely fast! During their immature stages, these isopods appear gray. As they mature, they take on a purplish hue before becoming steel blue. Keeping these isopods outside of a vivarium is possible with our Isopod Substrate or even better with our Isopod Culturing Kit. Since it is easy to maintain, the species is bred as a food source for pets or as a pet. 


The ability of powder orange isopods to thrive in a range of temperature and humidity levels is one of the key characteristics that makes them so adaptable.


There are many different types of food these isopods will consume, such as decaying hardwood (non-pine), leaf litter, Magnolia pods, freeze-dried peas or beans, mushrooms, sweet potatoes, yeast, shrimp meal, and many more. Most isopod foods like ours have a healthy balance of ingredients that will work for these isopods.

Life Cycle

In general, they grow up to about 1cm (around 0.5ft) in length. An estimated 1- to 2-year lifespan is believed to be typical for them.
