ooh, can the frogs (or whatever inhabitants) eat those or are they harmful? i've seen millipedes that kind of smell and figured they wouldn't be friendly feeders.

They aren't at all harmful, but usually just graze on detritus and are beneficial to the soil. These may be eating the algae on the plant leaves in the water portion of the paludarium. They are also abundant in the soil. These leaves have not been damaged at all. I've seen some of my larger dart frogs attempt to eat them, but they spit them right back out, so they must not taste very good. Their populations will get very heavy like this in new tanks, and then in older tanks, fade away to just a few or rare individuals. This species is very common in new dart frog tanks, which are humid, an are probably introduced by the tropical plants.
