Munnid Isopod

Munnid Isopod

Common Name: Munnid Isopod

Scientific Name: Munnidae

The Munnid Isopods are very beneficial herbivores. They can reach a maximum size of 1 cm and are usually clear-white in color. These creatures can often be seen running around on the aquarium glass scraping Diatoms and other microalgae. The female has a brood pouch on her abdomen where eggs and larvae grow. this pouch makes these creature very succesful aquarium breeders as they are not subject to the sweeping/filtering/pecking that free-floating larvae are normally subjected to. They often create a healthy population allowing the aquarium fish to peck on these tasty creatures regularly.

Common Opinion: GOOD
