The wonderful spaces between the balls allows = good aerobic.

The tiny balls are fired clay already - dunno if that would have a calcium transfer benefit.

Springtails like isopods need calcium to grow cuticle / bodymass. Best food I've found is Josh's frogs spring to life.
For springtails is usually mix a bit of calcium carbonate into their food and for isopods I put some cutllefish shell pieces (cleaned and boiled) into their box. I also usually do this in terraria to provide the resident isopods with a calcium source.
Currently keeping Dendrobates auratus "panama special", Mantella baroni and Afrixalus dorsalis
