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. Biobedding Tropical helps maintain humidity while providing a substrate your pets can dig and lay eggs in, all while helping to maintain healthy populations of microfauna.

  • Tank stays cleaner due to bioactive cycle
  • Less substrate changes, which is less stressful on your pet
  • Closer to replicating your pet’s natural habitat
  • More attractive than traditional substrates

Tropical Plant Kits for Animals

Suitable for Misted Setups: Yes. 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. 

Care: BioBedding Tropical is a naturalistic vivarium substrate and is meant to house a bioactive clean up crew! 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 quicker. 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.
