Growing to a maximum of 3cm, what this species lacks in size it more than makes up for in colour and visibility. This species need live moss and a couple of pinches of lime powder every month to be kept in peak condition. As with other millipede species, these guys love dead leaves and rotten white wood and also appreciate cucumber as an occasional treeat. Fish food flakes can be offered occasiionally as a source of protein. Please note that this species requires very high humidity.
They can be kept communally with their own species, however due to their small size and specialist requirements should not be mixed with other species
