Josh’s Frogs BioBedding Tropical Bioactive Substrate (10 quarts) is the perfect substrate for your tropical bioactive enclosure. Biobedding Tropical is a unique blend of organic and inorganic ingredients, trace elements, and beneficial fungi that serves to jump start the bioactive environment by encouraging plant growth and helping to maintain healthy populations of microfauna. Biobedding Tropical also helps maintain humidity while providing a substrate your pets can dig and lay eggs in. It is ideal for:
Crested Geckos, Day Geckos, and Fat Tailed Geckos
Tropical Snakes and Lizards
Tarantulas and other invertebrates
And many more! We do not recommend using BioBedding with Dart Frogs or anything that requires high humidity and low ventilation.
How to Use: Place a 2.5-3 inch layer of Biobedding Tropical in your enclosure. Add dechlorinated or R/O water until BioBedding sticks together when squeezed, but no water runs out. Terrestrial plants can be planted directly into BioBedding. BioBedding Tropical does not require a drainage layer if used with light or hand misting. For automatic misting setups, use in conjunction with a 2″ layer of Josh’s Frogs False Bottom and a Substrate Barrier.
How to Clean: Stir the surface of BioBedding Tropical every 1-2 weeks with a fork, or if waste is visible. Burying waste allows microfauna to process it more quickly. Change the substrate when it begins to break down – typically after several years.
Please note that Biobedding Tropical is designed to grow fungi – this is not a sign of a dirty tank, but of a healthy, clean bioactive environment.
