This bug den bioactive clean-up crew kit contains:

*Two small pieces of natural cork bark (approximately 3"x4" each)

*Approximately 20 grams of dry sphagnum moss (a very large handful)

*A quart of leaf litter (varies upon availability but is usually sea grape, maple, and oak leaves)

*50+ Trichorhina tomentosa Dwarf White isopods

*50+ P. pruinosus Party Mix isopods

*Two 8 oz. cultures of a mixture of semi-arid species of springtails on substrate.  

This combo pack will provide the essential microfauna for your bioactive enclosure.  These are safe and appropriate for most desert/semi-arid reptiles.  This kit is intended for 60+gallon enclosures.

Other isopods/springtails that do well in semi-arid/desert bioactive enclosures include any P. pruinosus Powder Blue/Orange/Oreo Crumble/Whiteout/Orange Cream/Red Koi, Lepidocyrtus cinereus 24K, Seira dowlingi Silver, Coecobrya communis Tropical/Pink. and P. laevis Gray/Dairy Cow/Milkback/Orange/White; however, use caution when using them as a clean-up crew with small animals as they enjoy protein, and there is always a rare chance P. laevis could injure small animals if the isopods are not provided enough leaves or supplemental food such as veggie scraps and dried protein such as mealworms or fish flake.
