I was interested in starting to keep isopods, and I have been wanting springtails for a while.  I was very excited to see that ANTdrew was selling them, so I got in touch with him via PM.   He sent me two test tubes with soil and springtails.  He was very helpful in answering my questions, and got them to me very quickly.  I am VERY happy with how it went, and would 100% buy from ANTdrew again.  Thanks so much!

 

10/10
