I got springtails just over a month ago and their enclosure seems to be exploding with babies. Is this rate of reproduction normal? I got a small container (I’d guess around a few dozen) of springtails and put them in a 6 qt tub and the tub is literally crawling with them.

Also what are the ethics of putting springtails in isopod cultures? Would someone buy them and not want the springtails or would I just warn potential buyers that there’s springtails in there?
