    I want to culture some springtails in my terrarium, and I kno for a fact that they all won't get eaten by my cps, would the springtails do damage to my terrarium. They are a lot helpful too, such as eating fungus =D. I want to use them to culture a food supply for my new arrivals in 2-3 months.

    Nope, springtails won't do any damage to your terrarium. In fact, I bet you have a bunch already. Just check the nep pitchers near the soil line. If they're small, black, and wingless, they're probably springtails.

    Its an indoor terrarium, and the only bugs I noticed are the Fruitflies I've been putting in. I'm thinking of buying some springtails for about 8 dollars online.
