Feed your bioactive cleanup crew with this easy to use, potent food for springtails and other custodians including isopods and roaches. Suitable for all bioactive systems; we love that these pellets don't mold or leave white residue.
By accurately feeding our custodians, we encourage them to multiply and become a source of positive nutrition themselves. When consumed, custodians become a welcome addition to a varied reptile or amphibian diet. As such, CustodianFuel can also be thought of as a gutloading food, as it will boost the nutritious quality of these invertebrates.

In bioactive systems, custodians are used to clean up the waste from the enclosure. Of course, we as keepers still need to spot check regularly for feces and uneaten food, and the frequency of this will depend on the species and the size of the enclosure, but custodians help to break down any organic matter.
Ingredients: Maize Meal, Calcium Carbonate, Wheat Flour, Brewers Yeast, Carrot, Green Pea, Mushroom Powder, Spirulina.
How to Use: Nothing is more potent or easy to use when it comes to feeding Custodians. EarthPro-CustodianFuel is simply pressed down into the substrate where it will break down and become a ‘nutrient rich soup’ from which invertebrates can feed. Every 7-14 days.
For those small species, including dart frogs and recently metamorphosed frogs and toads, springtails are also an excellent food source. For other reptiles, including leopard geckos and young bearded dragons or bosc monitors, to name a few, the larger custodians are also a supply of food.
