Springtails, often known as "Springs" in the terrarium and dart frog hobby, are an important aspect of maintaining a healthy environment in your tank. This is one of our most popular clean up crews that are kept as pets due to their extremely low price and hardiness to survive a wide variety of environments which is partly why they are considered a beginner clean up crew for new hobbyists.
For Arid Springtails, make sure to maintain a humid and moist environment. Spaghnum Moss, Oak Leaves, and Water bowls are their best friends. Feed every other day with an appropriate amount of SpringCuisine.
