Veggies and fruits, oak leaves / rotting wood for minerals, occasional protein source, extra-humid (assuming these are AGBs), and plenty of 'strate for burrowing.

Oak leaves, lots and lots of oak leaves. I use an inch of it over top of the substrate. High humidity too.

Well all of my AGBs had red mites moving all over them. It's suspected they help keep the spaces between segments free of debris. As long as they move they're fine.

As long as they move. The not moving ones are bad for millis just like scorps. I think they're cool, like a whole nother enviroment on a pet.

maaan this realy annoys me Evil or Very Mad have you ever looked at caresheets on the internet and realised they are giving you COMPLETELY wrong information? i remember reading a caresheet on emps and it said lifespan: can live for up to 20+ years and other stupid things. the same thing just happened with a millipede caresheet.

As much as that is annoying about the life span. Some fishes, infact most cold water fishes have a life span, or at least to meant to be able to live for 10 years or more. I think it just depends on the animal.
My fiance has never had a family cat past 8 while I have a cat who is 18 years old...

Some scorpions can live that long -- are you sure they weren't talking about scorps in general?

Either way, yeah, there's a lot of bad caresheets on the web.

My first freebie scorps was a baby H. trylogyte. I loved it but it frustrated me so much that I had it for months and no signs of molting. Wouldn't even eat.

I must be in for the long haul -- Thaedion sent me his 11 second-instars.

So, any other millipede questions? Smile
