Great for tree frogs

Holds moisture great and looks great in the tank. Wasnt a very big bag, so I mixed with regular potting soil for more depth.

A good alternative to ABG mix

I use Atlanta Botanical Garden mix for all of my tropical bioactive systems, but I thought I'd try this as an alternative. I am pleased. It retains water well without getting soggy or rotting. My plants are thriving and growing in nicely even with my big fat Mossy frogs hoppin' all over them. I will be using this in the future.
