Cubaris murina (Little Sea Isopods) 10 Count

Sale price$15.95 USD

Tax excluded. Shipping calculated at checkout

Cubaris murina are an excellent entry-level isopod. An understated little species, they still have the characteristic “ducky face” without the typical Cubaris price tag. They're also much easier to keep than their designer ducky cousins.

The ‘Little Sea isopods’ are a natural fit for tropical setups, and they can actually perform some bioactive duties in a terrarium. More than just a pretty face? In this case, yes.

Color morph selected: Classic murina

Compatibility Check

There is anecdotal evidence of Cubaris murina eating soft species of live plants. We haven’t experienced this, but to be on the safe side, I wouldn’t put them in a terrarium with any plants you’re overly attached to.

No extra charge for insulated packaging or heat/cold packs!
