Arcadia's EarthPro range brings another addition in the form of the CustodianFuel - a specific food supplement for live clean-up crew in bio-active set ups, be it rainforest or arid enclosures. This product is available in 80g pouches.
This pellet food is efficient and easy to use - simply take a stick and push into the substrate, allowing custodian inhabitants (springtails, woodlice, weevils, etc) to feed, enhancing their performance.
Bio-active set ups are the best way to keep reptiles in an environment that is natural, along with it being a self-cleaning eco system. This is a fantastic way of keeping species. However, sometimes there is not enough food to allow the bugs to continue to thrive in the long term. Therefore, this pellet provides Spirulina, Brewer's Yeast, Mushroom Powder and a high level of Calcium among its 9 ingredients.
Ideally, use every two weeks when necessary. The quantity required will depend on the enclosure size and the number of custodians to sustain. Place pellets about an inch apart, pushed into the substrate to allow feeding from beneath.
Keeping the custodians fit and healthy will allow them to keep things clean. This is beneficial for other smaller species, who may potentially eat these bugs. This will add to their nutrition levels, with the additional calcium they will receive.
