Default FS: LARGE black/silver Tomocerus sp. springtails

LARGE black/silver springtails (Tomocerus sp.), much larger than the typical white (Folsomia candida). Adults are roughly twice the size of a pinhead cricket (see photo). Produce MANY MANY offspring just as fast as the white ones, though as you might expect from the size, the growout time to adulthood takes a bit longer.

Culture readily on moist coconut coir chips, when fed weekly with baby food oatmeal flakes or baker's yeast. Occasionally (maybe once a month) I add some Sera Micron to supplement their diet. Reproduce year-round at temperatures from 45 to over 80F, with optimal reproduction between 65 and 75F.

They seem every bit as hardy as the white springtails, I will include more specifics on care with the cultures. Please read the included care sheet before opening cultures, as the adults can jump several inches!

Large 32oz. (1 quart) established cultures ready to split into multiple starters, $20 shipped. Add $15 for each additional culture and Iíll absorb the additional shipping costs.

Payment is via Paypal, and I will ship on Mondays and Tuesdays. Shipping is via priority mail.

Thanks for looking, PM me if interested.

Tim

If you're interested in a culture, please reply to this thread as well as PMing me. There have been some issues with PMs not properly being delivered.

Thanks!
