How I keep Mine

I keep my Vietnam Rainbow Millipedes in a plastic box but a fish tank would work just as well. I buy the boxes from Wilko or Tesco and make air holes in the lid with a soldering iron, a great little tool for burning the right size holes through plastic. I use peat or coir on the base and add leaf litter (Oak, Beech or other hard woods) and pieces of rotten wood. These millipedes seem to feed almost exclusively on the decaying leaves and wood rather than fruit and vegetables but I do add a little occasionally, I also add cuttlefish or powdered calcium carbonate occasionally which I am told is good for their growth. This species is easy to keep, warmth and humidity are important. I use a small heat mat and ensure there is not too much ventilation. If you are housing the millipedes in a fish tank you may need to cover some of the air holes with cling film so that the cage does not dry out. I rarely mist my millipedes as I find they get enough moisture from the leaf litter.
