The Garage Where it All Started - March 18, 2021

At Isopod Specialist LLC, I believe that innovation, passion, and determination can transform even the simplest of ideas into groundbreaking solutions. My journey began in a small garage when I was just 15 years old. I had a dream to revolutionize the way reptile owners approached feces disposal. Today, I stand as a testament to the power of believing in your vision and pursuing it relentlessly.

I discovered the beauty of bioactive vivariums when I was just 14 years old. By combining LED lighting, dead organic materials, isopods, springtails, and live plants, I created self-sustaining ecosystems that eliminated the need for frequent waste disposal. This not only saved time and money but also fostered a more natural and healthy environment for my bearded dragon.

However, the high cost and limited accessibility of the necessary materials made it challenging for many reptile owners, including myself, to create their own bioactive vivariums. With a vision to make this sustainable solution more affordable and accessible, I took matters into my own hands, armed with only $500 and three species of isopods.

Isopod Specialist LLC was born in that humble garage, fueled by a passion for sustainability and a commitment to making a difference in the lives of reptile owners and their pets. Through tireless effort and an unwavering belief in our mission, I have grown from a one-person operation to a thriving company dedicated to transforming the reptile care industry. 18 months after I founded the company all alone in March 2020, I hired my first employee and we've only expanded since.

Today, we proudly offer a wide range of isopod species, bioactive vivarium supplies, and expert guidance to help reptile owners build their own thriving ecosystems. And we even operate out of a warehouse by John Wayne Airport in Newport Beach, California. Our commitment to quality, affordability, and education has earned us the trust and loyalty of customers worldwide.

As we continue to grow, our core values remain at the heart of everything we do: innovation, sustainability, and a dedication to improving the lives of both reptile owners and their pets. We are honored to be a part of your journey, and we pledge to remain steadfast in our pursuit of excellence.

We invite you to join the Isopod Specialist LLC family and experience the difference that passion, innovation, and commitment can make in the world of reptile care. Together, we can build a brighter, more sustainable future for all.

Thank you for being a part of our story.
