Default Best species of isopod for my salamander

Hello all! I was just looking through this whole section and read that certain species of isopods may be better suited depending on the species of salamander or newt, something I didn't know previously. I have a beautiful, healthy Texas barred tiger salamander and was wondering what species of isopod would be best. I already know how to culture and originally was planning to collect the natives ones outside but read they may be too much to digest. I want the best food possible for my little one so any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I would say, get the largest species you can possibly get, such as the giant gary or giant orange. Smaller isopods probably wouldn't even be noticed by a Tiger.

Thank you so much for your input. I was aware of dwarf species but not giant, I'll be ordering some soon.
