Hydroton (also known as LECA, for light expanded clay aggregate) is a great choice for the false bottom or drainage layer in a vivarium. LECA is a natural product, made from heated clay. It retains moisture, provides lots of surface area for bacteria and plant roots to grow, and wicks water, which will help maintain humidity in a vivarium.
 
How to Use: Rinse with dechlorinated tap water before use. Place a 2-3 inch layer as the drainage layer in a vivarium. Designed to be used with our substrate barrier and ABG to provide ideal vivarium conditions for tropical plants and dart frogs.
 
Warnings/Caution: Rinse before use. May contain dust.

Drains well Review by Jenna

I haven't had any problems with the drainage in my crested geckos 18x18x24 bioactive terrarium, so far its working great! (Posted on 2/24/2019)
Josh's Frogs false bottom Review by Joel
Quality
This stuff is great it's so light which is great for larger terrariums. In retrospect I wish I would have put a bulk head on my terrarium before setting up my bioactive. The irregular shape helps with holding the caping you want in your terrarium, and it's far to big to be sucked up in most any pump you might have for a paludarium or the likes. Definitely will continue using this in all my enclosures to come. (Posted on 1/23/2019)
Perfect size and application Review by Charles
Quality
I got three because I am always unsure of online calculators for volume but two bags was exactly enough for my 18" x 18" Exo Terra. I was also a little curious if they clog the siphon in my viv but they are a good size and there are no worries there. (Posted on 1/21/2019)

Awesome product! Review by Paul
Quality
This false bottom is awesome! Very light weight material & does what it’s supposed to. If you have any extra left over from a vivarium build... smash some up with a hammer & add it to your house plant soil for extra drainage :) (Posted on 12/18/2018)

A winner for sure Review by joseph
Quality
I was unsure how i would like this as a false bottom. Tried it in a few bigger projects, and its so light, i didnt notice a weight increase, even with 6 bags! It stays perfectly in place, despite being so light, but if needed, you can shift it around a little with some force by massaging the area from above the substrate enough. (i did this to create some elevation in an otherwise flat area of the tank i setup.) (Posted on 7/31/2018)
Super light! Review by Kyle
Quality
I’ve always used hydroballs, but really don’t like he uniform look under bioactive tanks... it’s always seemed off to me. I toyed with they idea of using lava rocks but they were super heavy. This stuff is irregular and light and regulates moisture better than hydroballs. (Posted on 7/26/2018)
