No. Would never recommend anything but dwarf Isopods with dart frogs. Porcellio and porcellionides (probably spelled that wrong) are very protein hungry and could be a risk to frogs / eggs

I keep a cx of P. pruinosus 'powder orange' and used them in a crested gecko enclosure once (not again, though). They destroy ABG, make leaf litter disappear overnight and breed out of control. Neat critters, but not remotely 'clean up crew', IMO.

I used to have giant oranges in my enclosures for larger frogs my first time around. They would overrun the enclosures and I'd constantly be pulling them out when I saw them to keep populations in check. Definitely cool bugs if you have an enclosure just for them. Right now I've got some dairy cows in my ficus.

Does this mean that the A. gestroi I want to get will mess up my planted Biorb? :/ They're described as "slow to medium" breeders...
