Hi! I have had almost 3 years of isopod experience, and I first started out with Dairy Cows and Zebras. I begun with a group of around 30 of each, and were breeding rapid-fire these past years. Although, around 2 years ago, I noticed no isopods were exceeding 1/4 inch.
Fast-forward to now, THREE YEARS LATER, my first generation of Dairy Cows has barely matured and my largest zebras produced by me are STILL LESS THAN 1/4 INCH LONG.
I have tried everything imaginable to get these guys to grow. Replaced old substrate for nutritious mixes tons of times, feed protein every week with other frequent supplemental foods.
I am furious I have wasted 3 years for something that only should’ve taken 1-2 months.
I am even surprised they have lived this long without growing nearly at all. I could’ve had over a dozen generations of Dairy cows, just wish I had asked for serious help sooner.
