ABG mix is a premium substrate for tropical vivariums. A precise blend of charcoal, sphagnum peat, long fiber sphagnum, Josh's Frogs False Bottom, and fir bark, this substrate is capable of lasting several years when used properly. Originally perfected by the Atlanta Botanical Gardens of Atlanta, Georgia, this substrate will support a sizable population of microfauna while allowing plants to thrive. It is a good idea to wet the substrate before placing it in the vivarium.

The staff at Josh's Frogs is very friendly and helpful, and I received the package very quickly. The ABG Mix is really great - perfect for orchid growth and frogs. Thanks! (Posted on 4/2/2015)
Great replacement for coco-fiber Review by John A.
Quality
Recently re-did a RETF terrarium adding a waterfall and had to raise the terrarium "floor" to accommodate the higher water level. Instead of going back with straight Coco-Fiber substrate, I used this ABG mix. I must say, my plants really seem to be doing much better. It was an effort spooning out all the old coco-fiber from the plant pots in the hard-scape on the back walls but I changed that out for ABG mix too...Well worth the effort. Would certainly recommend it and will definitely order again. And of course, Joshes was great about getting it shipped out fast. (Posted on 2/12/2015)
So soft. Review by William
Quality
So I mixed this up in a cat littler bucket. Not the one with holes. What we have a lot of cats. Anyways I was impressed how soft this mix felt. It looks a bit odd sitting on top of everything (I didn't use this for darts) So I just covered it with a thin layer of eco-earth and then added live moss on top of everything. Already I can tell this stuff is great. THe plants I bought here seem happy with it. (Posted on 1/26/2015)
improved Review by Frogmom
Quality
This mix is an improvement from the one I purchased years before. This mix had a better ration of organic to the charcoal. I have not been buYing it because it originally had too much of lack of a better word broken up brown sticks. Easier to work with and excellent price. (Posted on 1/1/2015)
satisfaction Review by dasebs

This stuff is wonderful. I'm even more impressed by Josh's frogs.my mix was sent by three day shipping and arrived in two days. Their prices are the cheapest and their customer service is impeccable. They are professional yet they can talk to you like a normal person.can't say enough good things here guys. (Posted on 11/1/2014)
Great! Review by elly
Quality
I bought an ABG type mixture from another company and it was filled with large pieces that a frog could swallow. Josh's Frogs mixture had some large pieces too, but they were all down at the bottom of the bag where I could cut a hole and add them first, below everything else. The spagnum moss and soil in the top layer were fine ground and shouldn't be much of an impaction risk.
Quick shipping, too. Overall I highly recommend Josh's frogs. (Posted on 10/9/2014)
five stars Review by elpico

This mix is so interesting, my plants will never be bored again. While I stick to plants at this point, I can see how it would be a very natural substrate for animals. (Posted on 10/4/2014)
