Additionally, I recently seeded with isopods and springtails, but they seem to have disappeared. How long should it be before I should start seeing them crawling around and/or reseeding?
It can take a few months to see the isopods and springtails if the initial amount placed in the tank is not a lot. You can put a couple sprinkles of brewers yeast under the leaf litter to keep the springstails fed. Flip the leaf litter over a few hours after you feed to the brewers yeast to monitor progress.
