springtail

  1. Beginner Discussion
    My eyes are blurry and I now know more than I ever thought I would about springtails and isopods. Please go easy on this newbie. If I missed this, it wasn’t for a lack of searching (just poor search terms I guess!). I understand that the consensus is to use the initial crew to establish a...

    So I have not kept dart frogs yet, but I've been culturing springtails for years. I've never really had a 'bust' situation. The colonies go on almost indefinitely if proved basic stuff like charcoal and water. I've seen videos of frogs eating springtails, and my research says they're OK for...
  3. Food & Feeding
    I'm going to start finally splitting my one massive springtail culture into a couple small ones, but is it better to feed them frequently with small portions, or infrequently with large portions?

    Anyone from the Cincinnati area have cultures for Isopods, springtails, bean beetles, and maybe drosophila? I'm getting my viv set up and I want to get stocking on the food now, but shipping in cold stinks, plus Josh's and other online suppliers are sold out. PM me or email [email protected]
  9. Food & Feeding
    I purchased a tropical springtail culture from Josh's frogs and it arrived last week. I dumped it into a larger container and added natural mesquite charcoal and an inch of water. I also added a bit of leaf litter on top. For food I put in some dry rice, but I am concerned that maybe I added...
