Now cultured on Calcium Bearing clay for improved production, healthier cleaners and easier transference.
The most popular custodian animal used in most bioactive setups are Tropical Springtails, of the genus Collembola. Tropical Springtails can be kept easily in vivariums and terrariums housing amphibian species such as dart and milk frogs, Invert housing or lizard and snake setups where there is some humidity. They will readily feed on mould helping to maintain clean substrate. These fascinating little creatures are perfectly safe with reptile and invert eggs.

They also serve as an ideal nutritious live food for your pets. Amphibians such as frogs, insects such as small Mantis and even fish will consume them readily. They will float on the water surface making them suitable for fish food as well as terrestrial animals.

Springtail cultures can be used to seed your own cultures for a healthy, ongoing supply. We highly recommend the use of Bioactive Herps Bug Boost for feeding them. Bio Boost has also been shown to improve culture numbers.
