    Default Springtails


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hey everyone,
    I've recently redone my Gold Dust Day Gecko's terrarium and now it's a bioactive vivarium. Well, kind of. I've got the live plants in and I ordered a culture of springtails from Josh's Frgos but they all arrived dead. I called Josh's Frogs and asked for a new culture which arrived today but the springtails also appear dead, but I've only just transferred them to a tub within the last 10 minutes so they still could be in their CO2 induced coma. However, fearing the worst I want to know where I can get springtails either from a store so I can be sure they are alive or another online store that you guys have had good luck with. Thanks, and I'll attack photos of the vivarium below.

    Put the "dead" ones in the enclosure just in case. Bring in a small amount of soil from outside. I think you'll have springtails soon enough!

    Will do! I have been researching and I've learned that the springtail eggs may have survived but it'll take a few weeks to see anything. This works out perfectly for me because I leave for a 2 week long trip in a few days, so I'll be able to tell when I get back. Thanks!
