After some prodding, I talked my fiancée into starting a millipede colony in our spare fish tank instead of a new reef. We already had a young, female Archispirostreptus gigas, but I'm impatient.
Today, I picked up a package that was being held for me. It had two beautiful millipedes that I was expecting to be much smaller. The male is around 9" long, and the female 8". I placed them into their new home, and put them on a fresh plate of veggies, in case they were hungry.
I just checked back on our new critters and found them in the throws of passion. I don't think it'll be much longer before we have the pitter-patter of thousands of little feet!
