    It’s a good drainage layer

    By waterdragonxo on Feb 21, 2021

    These clay balls are better than buying gravel or rocks in my opinion. I haven’t been able to find actual clay balls for a good price that had good reviews, so I bought these. I don’t think they provide humidity for me, but maybe it’s because I have a large terrarium. But they absorb the water through the mesh which is good.

    Its ok, not as expected

    By bean on Jan 25, 2021

    The item works well for the aquafer properties that I wanted it for, but I did not know I might need other items, like mesh, to use it as such until it arrived. It said nothing about that in the description of the item. Overall it works pretty well, helps keep my crested gecko terrarium humidity up during cold, dry winter.

    easy to use and not too dusty

    By ROBERT on Mar 23, 2021

    I got this bag for a 18x18x18 cube crested gecko set-up. I probably should have gotten 2 bags, but it will work. No issues so far

    So far so good. I have no complaints other than I wish there were options of bigger bags.

    larger bags available

    By yeet on Mar 23, 2020

    these are great but cheaper if you buy them at a hydro or gardening store. popular brand is grow!t clay pebbles, comes in 10L or 40L bags. just make sure to rinse extremely well

    Good job Zoo Med!

    By Luca on Jan 2, 2020

    Works very well for bioactive setup and is much lighter than stones or pebbles. I would give 5 stars if this product came in 5 or 6 pound bags, because 2.5 pounds is only enough for a small enclosure like a 12 cube eco terra.
