Hey, just wondering if it would be ok to have springs tails in a nonbioactive terrarium with my mantis? She won't eat the spring tails as shes too big but, I don't know if you would need a drainage layer and leaf litter or whatever people use :2thumb:


Also would it be ok to have a potted plant in the terrarium without putting it directly into the substrate itself?


The reason I don't want to add a drainage layer is because if I full the bottom with too much substrate, It will then make the tank less tall and my mantis needs to molt, so I would need a bigger terrarium for that.


Thank you.

If you have soil or coir mix as substrate, and it does not dry out, you should be able to add springtails. They do not require soil so wet it needs a drainage layer.
