  • Straining May Be Necessary

    By on

    Normally, I am all for the Exo Terra bricks over the loose bags. The first time I used this brick, it went beautifully. The other 2 times I used it it did not go great. The second time I had to use a strainer to get the pieces out of the water b/c it didn't absorb as much. The third and last time I used it... honestly, the water wasn't absorbing, I put it in a closet to give it more time and have it out of my way, and then I forgot it existed. Until days later when I went in the closet. The loose bag is $1 cheaper and I just ordered 5 bags of it. I'm just going to spray down the loose stuff for my ball pythons.

  • Nothing better on the market

    By on

    We breed blue tongue Skinks from Australia. I always used Cypress mulch until someone gave me a brick of this to try. It's great - holds moisture well, doesn't mold, easy to burrow in. Expands incredibly. You won't believe how much you get from a brick.

  • Great for hermit crabs!

    By on

    I ordered this for our hermit crabs’ habitat. We have a smallish plastic enclosure, so I cut the brick in half with a kitchen knife. Once the material expanded after the addition of water, it filled the enclosure up about halfway. Next time, I’ll cut the brick into thirds, as 1/2 brick was too much. It is worth the value!

  • Great substrate for tortoises

    By on

    I have sulcata tortoises and this is great substrate for them. I either use this alone or in combination with Coco coir depending on the time of year.

  • Fantastic & Affordable

    By on

    This substrate holds humidity amazingly well and is perfect for tropical reptiles. 2-3 bricks last a month in a 40g enclosure and only cost about $8, as opposed to $20+ for many other tropical substrates.

  • Great Product

    By on

    I used it around the food and water bowls in my Hermit Crab tank. It acts as a door mat leading to the bowls and wipes off anything that might be stuck on my hermit crab's legs; keeping the food and water bowl clear of smaller particles of substrate as possible. Luckily, the pieces weren't as big as I thought. I was't sure how big the pieces were so to help anyone else wondering about that as well, I've attached a picture. It's just a handful of product and not an exact representation of all the different sized pieces you might find in the package.

  • My crab loves it

    By on

    My crab loves this stuff. I didn't use the whole thing like the instructions said. It makes so much. I put it in a separate dish, keep it damp and my hermit crab loves to sleep in it:

  • Just like description

    By on

    Worked perfectly to maintain humidity in my crested gecko's enclosure. Only issues that I found are that it's hard to find droppings to remove and that it doesn't say how long I should keep it before changing it out.

  • Very nice!

    My ball python does very well on this bedding, hopefully it will help with her stuck shed and humidity issues.
