Mmmmm.... I see your problem. Had a scout around the web as I don't keep this species and there's nowt!!!!
Millipede Mayhem was about the only place that gave you an idea (Well done Sarah..... again :D That place was frequently referred to when I first started).

I had 3 C. spinigerus, but they lived only for a few months. I bought them one at a time, but the same thing happened to all of them. I'm thinking about getting new ones, but I'm afraid they'll die too, since I'm not sure if it was something that I did wrong or if it was just bad luck. I kept them like I keep all my millies: room temp, regular misting, rotting leaves and wood plus fruit/veggies for food. My other millipedes are doing fine and some species are breeding.

I had the impression that C. spinigerus is a hardy species, so I'm a bit confused. Any tips, advice?

I am confused as well! C. spinigerus is normally quite tough. They are able to survive pretty poor conditions for a long time. Your conditions sound good and they should be doing well. Mine bred and produced a large batch of young under the same conditions.

The only suggestion is to check the moisture level of your substrate below the surface. Is it too dry or too wet?

Ok, thanks! Maybe it was just bad luck then, maybe they were old or something. I guess I need to try one more time, C. spinigerus is one of my favorite species.

My substrate is moist but not wet. I had other millipedes in the same tank with my C. spinigerus and they are still doing well.
