    After having her about a month now, she shed for the first time today. I'm assuming she ate her skin cause I read they do that and didn't find any. But I found this white ball on the bottom of the cage, looks like an egg but haven't touched it cause not sure if it's that or the skin she digested.image.jpg

    Yeah every time she poops, it gets fuzzy like that in a day if I don't clean it out. Since I have no male and had it a few months now, I'd assume it's unfertile?

    I was reading people use Isopods and springtails to clean their terriums..I have a ton of pillbugs and Isopods in my garden. Could I add some of these to help clean the coco soil?

    I'd be cautious doing that, you don't want to introduce anything foreign into the tank. Pesticides, parasites etc,New England Herpetoculture LLC - Live Bugs take a look here. I do all my business with NeHerp exclusively and have never been let down by them. If you buy the breeding kits for them you can constantly add them since you'll have them on hand, that's what I did with my springtails and isos

    why would you have to keep adding them? they should populate the tank and breed within.

    Because they're beneficial and it doesn't hurt to add them every now and then. The more the better
