Re: Culturing Isopods & Springtails together?
I culture them separately for control of production of both, but I don't know that it's bad to have them together. I have never had any trouble with cross contamination between any isos or springtails, but I have had trouble with cross contamination between iso species. Somehow (I assume because I used a spoon or something in both containers) my dwarf whites got in with my giant oranges one time. The dwarf whites completely outcompeted the oranges over time and I had to buy the oranges again and start over. So, I would not assume that a stable equilibrium in culture conditions can be maintained over long periods of time when multiple species are involved. That hasn't always been the case for me :-)
