Our Springtails & Isopods Combo Package is comprised of an 8 oz. mixed springtails seeding culture and the isopod species of your choice. This package is designed to provide maximum micro fauna penetration of your terrarium/vivarium ecosystem. These arthropods have ferocious appetites for decomposing leaf litter, animal feces, and dead plant matter. Springtails and isopods are also ideal dietary food supplements for dart frogs, small salamanders and newly metamorphosed amphibians of all kinds. Once established their colonies will continue to procreate creating a steady food supply for your pets while cleaning and maintaining your habitat's ecosystem.

Comprised of a sphagnum peat moss substrate, seeding cultures are ready to be added directly to your habitat's substrate. Simply empty seeding culture (in part or in full) directly into desired habitat. If emptied in part, add additional organic matter to seeding culture and springtails will continue to procreate in seeding culture container in perpetuity if properly maintained.
