<< Pennak says that aquatic sow bugs (isopods) and scuds (amphipods) usually
range from 5-20 mm so an inch-long specimen would not be out of the
question. I've never seen really "big" freshwater isopods. I've seen some
pretty big amphipods though, especially in springs, and some species of
Gammarus routinely excede 20 mm.

See, I never knew that they got all that big. Thanks for the reply on that,
I've been wondering about the large amphipods for awhile and thanks to all
that answered my questions on amphipods/isopods.
