8oz culture of Tropical White Springtails on your choice of peat moss or charcoal
Springtails make excellent feeders for dart frogs and hatchling reptiles. They are also excellent for creating Bio-Active tanks. Springtails eat mold and detritus. They can be added to virtually any enclosure and are especially helpful in humid tanks and terrariums. Springtails can even be added to the substrate in your roach, cricket, or other feeder insect enclosures. They eat the mold that forms on carrots, potatoes, and commercial feeds (or anywhere else) - to ensure your enclosure stays clean and safe for your reptiles and amphibians, all while providing a nutritious snack for smaller animals! Each culture contains hundreds of springtails including adults, juveniles and eggs and will continue to produce for months if care for properly.
