Anyone that used woodlouse for feeding able to tell me how keen they are on drowning themselves? I have a fountain in my enclosure that has a basin filled with gravel so im hoping they are less keen on it then crickets who seem to find ecstasy in it.

Crickets tend to blindly hop into water containers, especially when being chased by critters (a big reason I bowl feed - no wasted feeders). Woodlice aren't nearly that athletic (they scuttle and can't blindly hop anywhere even if they wanted to!), and unless they randomly fall in they will likely spend more time under your fountain than in it.

thanks for the reply. Yeah that seems to be true. right now ive set up a tank with just the wood louse in hopes that they will breed considering I have a pygmy chameleon that seems to have a preference for them

You may want a culture on the side if he likes them so much! Culturing will allow you to have the control to make the population boom (where it will have a lower density when in the tank) and you can make sure they area available regularly by adding more that haven't found all the hide spots in the tank yet ;)

I actually picked up a culture the other day that ive now set up for breeding. Its just kind of dispiriting to read that some breeds only have a brood of apx. 60 up to three times a year
