If you want to add variety then by all means buy some dwarf tropical woods and tropical springs. I have giant orange woods in my tanks if you want something a bit more obscure .
so apart from woodlice what else can i use out the garden and what does a good job earth worms ? i just want to get some stuff in there, my viv has only been up and running a few days but dont want it to start getting dirty and smelly
