Hi, longtime lurker here!


Wondering if zonatums will eat springtails or fruitflies from the surface? Also wondering if anyone has tried feeding cfb's (confused flour beetles) or cfb larva?

I don't know from experience, I would think they would take advantage of small insects floating on surface. They surely eat midges and mayflies, so why not other insects. Give it a shot.

NAAS, I am purchasing a grindal worm culture. One seller has some mixed with springtails mixed in. I was curious about your results before I make my purchase. Thanks!

Unfortunately I don't have any aquariums right now, just doing research and dreaming...


Please let us know how the z's react to the springtails if you drop some in!
