      1. Just finish doing a vivarium thinking clean up crew (spring tails/isopod) from there is the same as aquarium is just the same (pleco/shrimp eating detrius) but doesn’t seem they do until I found this website about freshwater isopod. Just brought from the Carolina website, $10 shipping is pretty nice compare to other places. I will let you know how they are after they come.
