About This Product

Springtails (Folsomia candida) are tiny arthropods (1-4 mm) and are used as "Tank Janitors" in a terrarium, eating all kinds of decaying organic matter. They also make a great supplemental food for your poison dart frogs.

When you add springtails to your tanks they will reproduce. Simply dump some of the charcoal into the terrarium and mix the charcoal right into your substrate, or fill the culture with water and dump the floating springtails in the terrarium. One culture can benefit 20-30 terrariums. Cultures are started about 3 months before shipping.

Feed weekly with Josh's Frogs Spring to Life Springtail Food

If you are not adding to terrariums, we recommend that you buy a starter culture and use it to start a larger culture (we use 6 qt. Sterilite containers). Larger cultures produce better and are less prone to CO2 buildup. If you use this smaller culture to start a larger culture to feed froglets or seed multiple tanks, allow the culture to grow for a month before use.

IMPORTANT SHIPPING NOTE: Adult springtails tend to die in shipping, so please give your culture a couple weeks for eggs to hatch and grow! Be sure to allow adequate airflow once your culture is received to release the buildup of CO
