So I noticed I have some springtails in my White's tank today.
I understand that they're good little helpers in cleaning the tank and all. But I do have one concern: They won't leave the tank and infest my house right? Lol This may seem like a dumb question. If it is, I'm sorry.

Not a dumb question at all. Its a common concern with people not familiar with them.
No they will not infest your house. I would just be worried about them over populating and bothering your whites since they won't be eating something that tiny but I don't think you have to worry to much about that either. Just keep an eye on them and make sure they don't get out of control. If you see them climbing on him you may want to redo the tank but odds are they will just reinvade the tank. I get them popping up in every temp tank I don't even seed them in.

Okay, great to know! Thank you! It's crazy how they just kinda pop up out of nowhere. I'll definitely make sure they don't become over populating.
Thanks again!
