Does anyone raise pedes or isopods?

If so, if it's possible, I'd like to see your enclosures. Tomorrow I will officially be expanding into something besides tarantulas. Three different isopod species (maybe more, as the seller really sweetened the deal), two millipede species (one is currently undescribed), two centipede species (one is just something the seller decided to throw in just because). I just want to hear some tips from you all if you have any.

I tried to breed them. With no luck in the long run. I always did order them online...

The deal I got was amazing, I can't wait to document the unknown millipede species, they look like bumblebee millipedes on steroids.

As for the isopods, one species in particular is stunning, hopefully I can get a good culture going.

Never thought I'd get a centipede, but looking at pictures of one particular species changed my mind, and now I ordered two specimens.

I might utilize the gallery for the first time to document this project.

Going to update:

1. Decided not to get any isopods, due to something I read and decided it was best not to. As for the other things, those are still coming.

2. Decided to ask the seller to hold off on shipping for a few weeks, due to this shutdown.
