The Cubaris murina 'Papaya' isopod, also known as the "Papaya" isopod, is a small isopod species that originated in the United States and has an albino mutation, giving it a soft pink color and sometimes white skirting.

These isopods can thrive in both arid and tropical environments, making them an ideal choice for beginners. However, their harder exterior makes them less suitable as feeder isopods. Breeding these isopods can take some time, but once established, they are one of the easier Cubaris sp to maintain as they produce medium to large-sized broods prolifically. 


Please carefully read the following information before placing an order for isopods:

We guarantee that each shipment will contain the exact number of isopods you have ordered. Depending on the species, a few extra isopods may be included.  

 Once you receive your isopods, you can introduce them into their new home or bioactive setup. To ensure their safe arrival, we ship our isopods with sphagnum moss and a small food source.  

 Additionally, we include insulation and heating or cooling packs, depending on the temperatures in your area at the time of delivery. We do not charge extra for these packs. When placing an order, please consider the temperatures in your area. 

  We will only ship when temperatures consistently range between 40-90ºF, and we will use proper heating and cooling packs to maintain safe temperatures in the box during transit. However, it is your responsibility to be aware of the temperature when shipping. We only offer a live arrival guarantee for overnight delivery. 

  If temperatures are questionable on either side, we may postpone shipment to ensure that your isopods arrive safely. We will always communicate with you prior to shipping if there are any concerns about temperature. We are committed to ensuring the safe and healthy arrival of your isopods, and we appreciate your understanding and cooperation in this matter.
