Springtails are very easy to keep and can be cultured in a small plastic container without causing any inconvenience.
Keep them moist and feed them a little food every now and they and they can be harvested easily and fed to your fish.
Being a live food, they help make your fish's diet more natural, without risking contaminants from the wild. They also trigger natural feeding instincts that can often trigger spawning or breeding in some species.
You will receive a starter colony of 100 or more Springtails with some bedding / substrate. Numbers are not exact and there will be adults and young (almost invisible to the human eye).
You will need a small container and some compost or coco-coir to use as bedding. This is a starter culture and will take a little time for the population to grow before you can feed them to your pet.
