While starting a new culture of another species, these little guys popped up. They are very secretive, coming up to feed on powdered foods sprinkled on the substrate surface before retreating into the depths once more. It is difficult to determine just how big the culture is due to these habits, however at extremely high population levels they will accumulate under bark or other décor placed on the substrate surface, allowing for easy collection.
