Default Re: Culturing Isopods & Springtails together?

All of my isopod cultures have springtails by accident so it isnt much of an issue at all but they will compete for the same food sources so theres that. For me its fish pellets the springs attack them just as quick as the isos sometimes completely covering the pellet. The purpose of a culture is to produce more of whatever it is you are culturing. To give the best chance at that you may want to reduce competition for all critters involved. It may seem like the isopods wouldnt have a problem dealing with springtails but the baby isopods are so tiny they may potentially have issues. I would recommend culturing them separately unless you are working with limited space.
