It was even a totally innocent comment - it's Repashy's fault for choosing inappropriate names! :LOL: :ROFLMAO:
Sure it was lol while I have you. Do you know how to sex isopods I found one link taking about sexing them and wanted to see if it was correct info or maybe @jamest0o0 can help me out as well

Determining Sex: On the underside of the female isopod, leaf-like growths can be observed at the base of some of the legs. These are known as brood pouches. On male isopods, the first two appendages on the abdomen are modified as elongated copulatory organs

Let me see if I can find one of my gravid females... if you flip them over and look toward the middle ofthe abdomen, the females (if gravid) will have a yellow "pouch"/bulge. If the eggs have already hatched, you can see a bit of movement, or little yellowish spheres!

Otherwise, you want to look toward the bottom of the last 5 segments. :)
