We consider Dwarf Isopods to be suitable for all tropical & temperate enclosures which have fairly moist (not necessarily wet) substrate, and a minimum of 50% relative humidity. In addition to being kept as pets & utilized as detritivores within live vivarium environments, these dwarf species are sometimes offered as feeders for small insectivores.   Cah ORSTOM Oceanogr ; French.

They employ a variety of lifestyles including free-living scavengers and predators but also obligate parasites. This modern-day variability of lifestyles is not reflected in isopod fossils so far, mostly as the life habits of many fossil isopods are still unclear. A rather common group of. main page.

They are blood feeding. Several species settle in the buccal cavity of the fish host, others are attached in the gill chambers, on the surface of the body, often on the fins. Studies on cymothoids parasitizing Indian marine fishes are scanty.

1. Introduction. Cymothoid isopods are obligate fish parasites, occurring in all oceans with the exception of polar waters. The family is primarily marine, with limited occurrence in African and Asian freshwaters, but a moderate diversity in tropical South American river systems, notably the Amazon and its tributaries.

The family Aegidae has not been reported on from Australian waters since the time of Hale (,). The only accounts of aegid isopods from the Indo-Pacific since Hale's publications are the Siboga Expedition report of Nierstrasz (), and a note by Stephenson () reporting a new record for New Zealand.

Introduction. Isopods are common inhabitants of nearly all marine natural environments. Their high diversity (approximately aquatic species; Brusca and Brusca, ) and evolutionary success are reflected by their presence in virtually every marine and brackish water habitat, from intertidal zones to deep s of Isopoda inhabit basically the benthic realm, where densities of up to.

Introduction. Isopods are generally small crustaceans, usually with seven pairs of legs that range in size from micrometres (Microcerberidae) to nearly 50 centimetres (Bathynomus).Their name, meaning "like-foot" or similar (iso) and foot (pod), probably comes from early zoologists' familiarity with the common terrestrial "slaters" or "woodlice" (other names: cloportes, pissebedden.

The family Cymothoidae is unique in being among the first isopods described and being the first isopod family subjected to a comprehensive world revision (Schioedte and Meinert, ).Cymothoids, being relatively large (10–50 mm), came to the attention of taxonomists early in the history of crustacean taxonomy, in large part through the work of the early.

Isopoda is an order of crustaceans that includes woodlice and their relatives. Isopods live in the sea, in fresh water, or on land.
