We have springs and Iso's in all our tanks.

Great viv cleaners and frog food.

springs are great to have when starting a new viv. They act as great custodians as well as a good food supply for froglets...

Yes...you should get some. Keep in mind that they will be a starter culture and far from booming. There are several threads on here that discuss culturing them in detail. Order some then read those threads so that when they arrive you will be ready to get them going. Good luck, have fun, and welcome to the hobby.
