Springtails Bio-active Cleaners and feeders for your habitats
Springtails (Folsomia candida) are tiny arthropods (1-4 mm) and are used as "Tank Janitors" in a terrarium, eating mold and waste. They also make a portion of great supplemental food for your mantids, spiderlings, poison dart frogs. This 8oz culture houses springtails on a dirt-like substrate, which can be added directly to your vivarium! We use a clay-based substrate and you can use some in your vivarium or just add the springtails.
Our cultures are the best and most desired!
One of the most desired critters in a terrarium is springtails. ... Because they help combat and eliminate the most common terrarium problem: mold. They feed off of mold and dead vegetation and therefore make for a great cleanup crew.
When you add springtails to your tanks they will reproduce. Simply dump the entire springtail culture in your terrarium and mix the substrate
Original clay springtail cultures by Jesse Isaiah - As my residency has become more time consuming, I have moved to selling these only through eBay for the time being.
Springtails are detritivores that will consume decaying plant material, mold and waste in your bioactive enclosure. Unlike cultures grown on charcoal, these cultures can be gently tapped out into your vivarium. No need to flood the culture and have them float out. If you keep the moisture content at the right level, the soil in the culture will stay attached to the bottom and will not fall into your vivarium. Great for terrariums, vivariums, bioactive setups, dart frog food, etc.
