Tropisternus Water Scavenger Beetle


3 in stock


The Tropisternus water scavenger beetle is a small genus of beetles measuring about 1/4 of an inch. They are a fun addition to any tank of aquatic beetles. They will scavenge on fish food pellets (sold separately in the links below) and a variety of other detritus in the tank. We keep them with diving beetles and don’t see predation on them by the diving beetles.

These active beetles tend to be rounder than the flatter diving beetles and they move their legs differently. The definitely spice up any tank with respect to diversity.

Some specimens are black and reflect a greenish or metallic gleam from certain angles.
