Springtails are a very small useful food for people who breed many species of amphibians (particularly poison dart frogs) where the newly metamorphosed froglets are too small to take even micro crickets.
They also form an essential part of a bio-active forest terrarium where they help to clean up waste and detritus from the tank.
We now stock springtail colonies as well as a dedicated food for maintaining them.
Typically people would have fed the colonies using fish food, boiled rice or mushrooms but the new ProRep granular Springtail food takes away all of the mess and hassle of these more traditional foods.
It is simply sprinkled sparingly onto the surface of the culture media 2 or 3 times a week and is consumed completely, leaving no mess, waste or contamination.
