    3 weeks ago now, I moved my Male AFT off of Eco Earths loose coconut fibres and put him and as of last Saturday, my new male AFT gecko on Arcadia's earth mix. Both seem to like it and have had a lot of fun burrowing it seems :2thumb: I have however, hit a stump. Both boys have UVB canopies, and...

    I recently set up a crested gecko exo terra tank. I found a video online from lllreptile.com showing how to build a natural vivarium for plants. The substrate was as follows: 1. Hydro balls with mesh on top to keep separate 2. Eco earth to full cover and plant the 3 plants I chose from the safe...

    I'm bringing home my frist blue tongue skink. I have done a lot of reasearch and am almost 100% ready for it. My only question is that I want to know if I can mix eco earth (coconut fiber) and top soil as a substraight. I know they like to burrow and when I fostered Savannahs I mixed sand and...

    I'm new to keeping reptiles but at the same time know not to trust every stranger online who thinks they know best, so I've come here for a second opinion. My tank floor is covered in a coconut fiber eco-earth (plantation soil to be precise). Someone elsewhere online has privately messaged me...

    Hi there. So we have a young water dragon whos about 30cm head to tail and we're currently using eco earth cocnut fibre substrate but the fibres have been getting in his eyes and causing problems. I was wondering if anyone knew of anything else we could use to cover the whole floor that can hold...

    Just how good is this stuff? Is it safe to use with small snakes or is there an impaction risk if swallowed? I'd like views from anybody who uses Eco earth or has opinions about it.

    I have made a planted viv for my crestie and used gorilla glue and eco earth for the background. It all looked fine but once i have put the crestie in and he climbed over the side the eco earth starts to fall off. Have a missed something important when building it or can i put something on the...

    Has anyone here run into having small flies in eco earth or do they just find their way to the eco earth after the fact.

    Just making a batch of eco earth. And when squeezing out the excess water there is loads of white crystal things. They are tiny but I don't want them causing harm. Is it because I used boiling water? It's a different brand to what I normally use. Anyone come across this before?

    hi guys I hope you can help me out with this. Over the weekend I wanted to give my crestie some live food again as she can be quite fussy with insects. Anyway I put some dusted crickets in. She is on eco earth as a substrate. She dived and missed and second time she got the cricket. Now both...

    Hey guys. I'm a bit of worrier anyway but here goes. I have my 2 year old crestie on eco earth I've had her for a few months now. She normally just feeds on repashy so its never been a problem. I put some crix in the viv last night as she won't eat in a separate tub as she likes to hunt in her...

    ........for a crestie? On a mix of eco earth/compost/soil with living plants and uv currently with no problems during last few years. However, looking to change to a layer of `grass` over the top of this (water gets through, so humidity will not be a problem) as i struggle to see poops as much...

    Hi guys, have got my crestie in a exo terra now and have a eco earth substrate. Have just been feeding my crestie some baby roaches and have noticed that when she dives for them she sometimes gets some eco earth with the roach. Am worried about impaction if she eats too much of it. What do other...

    I bought some eco earth today for the bottom of Splat's viv. I am having trouble maintaining humidity in there even though I have covered half the top. The faunarium never has prblems retaining humidity. Anyway, I was just wondering if it will do Splat any harm having his floor permanently...

I have only found one place online (as when you try to google it it comes up with lots of random crap) but that site uses some strange payment method which im not comfortable...

    Hiya! Never a dull day with snake keeping, eh... I replaced the kitchen towel all my snakes were on with a layer of hydroton clay balls and eco-earth on top, went to check on my girls today, and there was mould in the hot end! Obviously I've removed the mould from the tank and was wandering...
