Eco Earth coconut fiber
Not new to Eco Earth coconut fiber and this is doing exactly what I needed it to do. Using this as part of the substrate in a roughneck monitor enclosure.
Love this substrate for my ball python. We freeze it when we first receive it to kill any mites that may be in there, and then add water until it’s the right texture. Chewy makes autoship really easy so we love using them for all of our pets!
Perfect for my cresties
I have 6 crested geckos in a big tank and a 3 pack lasted me months. It's ideal for reptiles that thrive in the forest, and burrow. It doesn't harm them and my geckos can find their live feed through it. Gonna buy again when in stock. :)
not the best for beardies
it said this product was good for beardies, but since it needs to soak in water before going in the terrarium, the humidity was way too high and i had to take it all out. my beardie was too interested in it and kept licking to smell it, and probably ingested a small amount, but it’s indigestible and can cause impaction. i do not recommend for bearded dragons. probably a better product for tropical reptiles.
Good product. Just wish it could be bought in larger quantities for us that use it in bulk.
Great product, fast delivery. I usually get the same thing from the pet store, for my composting toilet. The problem with the store option is that I can only buy up to three bricks at a time due to store shelf availability. I plan on using this method in the future
I got pork chops , he's a guinea pig
This for his bedding and he seems to like it, had to make sure that after I absorbed it in water and it soften, to let dry out before placing your small furry pet on it.
No longer a Value
Price is 4x what it was. No longer a good buy. Turned off my autoship.
Okay but not consistent
These are good for the price but unfortunately in a 3 pack of bricks , the three bricks aren’t always consistent. What I mean by that is that sometimes one brick makes a lot of substrate/bedding for the tank and then you’ll randomly get a brick that makes noticeably less substrate than the others which is an issue because I end up with overly hydrated bedding that is more suited for a swamp environment than it is for my snake. I’m going to have to resort to weighing each brick individually before adding water, that way I don’t over hydrate
cannot get cause you haven’t had
When, if ever, do you plan to get this in or do I go elsewhere
