Breeding Rubber Duckys And Panda Kings

 Breeding isopods is an easy and rewarding experience, especially when you get to raise unique morphs like the Rubber Ducky and Panda King.


Before breeding isopods, it is important to have the correct setup and understanding of their basic biology. Isopods are social creatures, and it is recommended that they be kept in groups of five or more. They require a moist environment with plenty of decaying organic matter, such as leaf litter, and a hide to keep out of sight if needed. They also need fresh food and water sources, including fruits and vegetables, fish food, and a calcium source for moulting.


Now, let's talk about breeding isopods, specifically the Rubber Ducky and Panda King morphs. These morphs are unique and highly sought-after due to their striking appearance and rarity. The Rubber Ducky morph is known for its bright yellow colour, while the Panda King morph has distinct black and white stripes.


To breed these morphs, you will need to first have a colony of regular isopods. Once you have your initial colony, you will need to monitor their breeding process and wait for the morphs to appear. Once you notice a Rubber Ducky or Panda King morph, you will need to separate them from the regular colony to ensure purebred offspring.


To encourage breeding, provide your isopods with a moist environment, plenty of food, and a calcium supplement. Isopods mate through internal fertilisation, after which the female will carry her fertilised eggs in a brood pouch on her underside. In about four to six weeks, the eggs will hatch into miniature versions of the adult isopods.


As the offspring grow, make sure to provide them with fresh food and water. As they mature, you will eventually be able to identify the morphs and separate them from the regular isopods.


In conclusion, breeding isopods can be a fun and rewarding experience, especially if you are lucky enough to breed unique morphs like the Rubber Ducky and Panda King. Remember to provide the correct setup for your isopods, monitor their breeding process, and separate morphs from the regular colony to ensure purebred offspring. With a bit of patience and care, you'll be able to raise a thriving colony of these fascinating creatures.
