    Yeah, I'd love to get some of those deep sea guys but supposedly you need a nearly ice-cold tank and a way to give them the deep sea pressure.

    They have a pair at one of the zoos in TX, I'd love to be able to see them in person, they've got metallic eyes like natural mirror coated sunglasses. Supposedly they eat them in Taiwan, "sort of like lobster".

    Do you know if there are any species that stay small (max of 1/8" or so)?

    i wish Ron, but i dont think so. the only way you're going to get 1/8" is if you have tons and tons of babies.

    That guy I mentioned has a few species of something he calls "micropods" on his list but I can't find any images online of any insect when I search for that. They might be 1/8" or less but what they are I don't know since he didn't list the species name.

    I have seen some white, very small isopods for sale. My orange ones produce numberous babies so there are always lots of small ones in the tank, though sometimes you have to dig to see them as they spend more time buried.

    The reason I was asking about the 'micropods' was several years ago I received some dews in a trade and they were crawling w/ isopods. I asked him what was going on & he told me that he deliberately kept the isopods in with his plants. He felt that their constant digging & tunneling helped aerate the media.

    The size of a 'normal' isopod seems pretty big to be digging around in most of my pots - however, I can possibly envision some smaller, similar creatures helping to create a more hospitable media environment - hence the possible interest in the micropods.....

    Hmmm - could be an interesting experiment.....
    All the best,
    Ron
