Isopods Need Calcium

It’s essential to provide a consistent source of calcium for your isopod colony because they have exceptionally high requirements for dietary calcium. These crustaceans depend on hard, calcified exoskeletons for protection but must molt regularly to allow for growth. During the molting process, isopods re-absorb some calcium from their exoskeletons, but they still lose some calcium, which has to be replenished from their food.
