    ABG is HELLA expensive around here and anything that is remotly close is also $$$. I was thinking of using Pea Gravel for the substrate and mixing in my left over of Fir Bark and adding in my colony of springtail with the Horticultural Charcoal they've been using. Any thoughts/opinion ?

    I ran into a problem I didn't expect to have at a point in my frogkeeping life. I moved my D. Auratus into their new enclosure 3,5 weeks ago and now they mostly gorge themselves on the very prolific springtail population in the tank. I don't worry about them starving, because their bellies are...

    Hello! I am interested in what news are out there concerning dusting springtails? I have read multiple posts and what I found was the next: Collembola sp. can absorb Calcium pretty efficiently, so dusting with Ca is not necessary, but with others it can be done. Dusting a little does no harm...

    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...

    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?

    I have a tank that is empty of frogs and seeded with isopods and springtails. The past few days when I look inside the tank I see Isopods all over. I plan on receiving some Frogs from Blue Pumilio this week and I was curious if I should worry about there being to many full grown Isos in the...

    Hey guys, I'm totally new to dart frogs. I currently keep two blue tongued skinks, and I have kept a cuban tree frog in the past. Understandably, I have never had to deal with any of the tiny little insects that dart frogs need, and know nothing about their nutrition. I was looking at Josh's...

    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]
  12. 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...
