Bruce et al-

Are the isopods I find in creeks from time to time a different species
from the isopods I find under rotten logs (that I call pill bugs)?

If so, how long can the terrestrial isopods survuve under water? I
expect that my fish would polish off nearly all the isopods I feed
them, but I wonder if htose that were missed would survive and eat my
plants or die and pollute the tank.
