I like this idea and let it dry for over 10 hours and it was still wet. Drying "overnight" generally means 6-8 hours. So thats untrue. Id say expect it to take 24 hours to dry fully. I had no choice but to put my bearded dragon back in the tank as i have no other enclosure for her and its colder in my house. Also, 1 bag would maybe do a 30 gallon or smaller. I have a 40 gallon and it almost covered the bottom in a slightly thin layer. Not sure if i want to buy more of this to finish the tank.
This unfortunately is no use for covering up a form to make a hide. It completely crumbled apart after drying. I used a layer of about 3/4” thick. Wasted.
This is a good product, just when you make it too thin, it might be unstable, but anyway, that’s just common sense.
It’s good you just need a lot of it. It only did one small corner or my 55 gal tank. It’s kinda hard to work with but after you get the hang of it it’s great. ( also letting it dry takes a long time )
I bought two bags of this then I decided to buy two more which are still on there way to my house so I can't cancel the order ugh. Honestly the worst thing I bought for my bearded dragon. Followed the instructions to the T, and I left it dry over night. It did not hardened at all. So now I have to clean my bearded dragon and his whole tank out due to this product.
This is a clay that hardens when it dries. It's used to form caves and structures for your pet's enclosure. I read that it takes days to fully dry. That means I'll need to purchase something to house my pet(bearded dragon) in while I set this up for him. I've read this is not for burrowing. That people's bearded dragons try to eat it. Something like this could cause impaction.
My beardie was apprehensive at first, but has quickly come to love it. She likes to burrow in it in her hidie holes and chase insects on it.
I LOVE this stuff! I've used it in multiple leopard gecko terrariums and it looks fantastic. First of all it dries hard, so you can provide a natural looking terrarium without the risk of impaction from sand. Plus you can use the clay to create so much enrichment as well as so many hides and basking spots, and if you want to remake your landscape, you just wet the sand again and create a new layout. Cleaning is a little more difficult compared to paper towels or something like that, but honestly the looks and enrichment are well it.
Shipping was fast! Bag was in perfect condition and was as expected!!
I only used it for a few days now but so far I'm pretty satisfied. The only thing I don't like is how hard to work with it can be! Expect to bend a few spoons and turn your hands chunky and red trying to get it in the shape you want.
