The clown isopod has been the holy grail of roly-poly collectors the world over. These delightful isopods are festively adorned with white and yellow polka dots on a smooth black background and decadently skirted with a tasteful trim of red-orange. Unlike the species most are familiar with, the clown isopod seems to prefer warmer and drier conditions, although it is very important to ensure there is a moist retreat somewhere in the enclosure. They will feast on the familiar roly-poly diet of detritus but show particular enthusiasm for fish flakes and pellets. Often, several will mob the same piece of food, which is quite comical and eye-catching!
