Where to Purchase/Collect Springtaisl and Detritivores

Hey all! I spent this week creating my first bioactive vivarium for my bearded dragon, Khaleesi. Everything is good, both her and the plants are acclimating well, however, I don't have any springtails, which I consider essential to the setup. I have very few isopods, and some mealworms in the soil to create pockets. The isopods I have now are second-generation of ones I caught outside my house, as I don't want to introduce any harmful bacteria or microorganisms to the vivarium from directly caught ones.

My main point, does anyone know of any reputable retailers for isopods and springtails? Or how I can safely collect and introduce them? Would love to get this squared away before I have to head back to university, thanks!

I haven't purchased from them myself, but I've heard good things about https://www.joshsfrogs.com/live-insects-feeders/springtails-3.html.

If you lack the resources to properly care for an animal, you should not take on the responsibility to do so. Period.
