Default Woodlice in the newt tank

I am raising some C. Orientalis morphs right now. I read somewhere you can put some woodlice into a terrestrial tank and have them reproduce and culture right in the newt tank. Can I do this? How?

If I can, I'd do that, and also feed them pieces of earthworm or tubifex, as their diet. Any tips on feeding C. Orientalis juvies?

thanks

See:
Tropical white woodlice grown in tank: refugium
and
Caudata Culture Articles - Raising Juvenile Newts

The woodlice wouldn't be the primary food source. I recommend pinhead crickets above all else. Then flightless fruit flies.
