Substrate Barrier (24"x18")-

$1.99

Quantity Available: 8531

Josh's Frogs Substrate Barrier is a vital layer in all successful naturalistic vivaria. Substrate Barrier fits between the false bottom and ABG Mix layers, and ensures that no ABG Mix falls down into the false bottom, disrupting water flow. Josh's Frogs Substrate Barrier also prevents a clogged false bottom and the wicking of water from the false bottom into the other naturalistic vivarium substrate layers. When these substrate layers become saturated, anaerobic bacteria grow, which create a smelly, very unhealthy environment. The only solution is to replace the affected naturalistic vivarium substrates with new ones. Josh's Frogs Substrate Barrier is simple, inexpensive, and effective way to prevent this situation from happening. Each peice of Josh's Frogs Substrate Barrier measures approximately 18" x 24"

Simple but important Review by Natasha

The substrate barrier was almost the perfect size but a little trim make it work (Posted on 10/10/2018)
Slow water drainage Review by Paul
Quality
Ordered this barrier for Vivarium build. Barrier isn’t the best draining material. Good for not allowing substrate particals to enter your false bottom layer. I did a draining test to see how fast water would pass through & it took an extremely long time. Got nervous & ripped it out. Decided to go with another option. This is in no way Josh’s frogs fault as they don’t not produce the meterial. (Posted on 10/6/2018)
Nice Review by Cecelia
Quality
Didn’t think I’d really need this thing but i got it anyway and it’s a nice material keeps the layers separate and the water in the bottom better. (Posted on 8/25/2018)
works for what it is Review by jim
Quality
It is just a standard piece of ground cover, but this saves you from buying a roll if you don't have one. Works great if you don't water too much and mist often, it is slow to drain. I wouldn't recommend if you have something that splashes allot of water around. (Posted on 8/25/2018)

Very convenient that it was cut to size.Water does not easily pass through, so I had to cut a few holes. (Posted on 8/11/2018)
Substrate wont pass Review by joseph
Quality
It keeps 100% of substrate in, but it takes water forever, and in some cases doesnt allow to pass through. I switched to the exo terra stuff and double layered it and get the same effect, but with great water passage. (Posted on 7/31/2018)
Excellent Review by Kyle
Quality
The piece was 18x24, so I just folded the excess... my only complaint is that not having 18x18 and having to fold the excess lead to imperfections in my corners. (Posted on 7/26/2018)
Yay Review by Amanda
Quality
This is great size as i will have extra for other builds and help keep soil moist but now soaked since water passes through great product. (Posted on 7/14/2018)
Awesome price for such quality Review by Brian
Quality
Water doesn't easily pass through but the good thing is that dirt doesn't at all, so I will take it :) (Posted on 3/1/2018)
Good barrier but... Review by Whisk
Quality
This is a good barrier as dirt will not pass through. However water is slow to pass through it and this presents issues with the waterfall setup I have as the water pump shoots out more water then it can pull quickly enough. I had to cut a couple of slits in the barrier to let water pass through quickly enough for the pump.
If you have a waterfall in your terrarium, get the exo terra barrier, it has bigger holes to allow water through faster. If you dont have a waterfall get this as it works very well for keeping dirt out and is cheaper. (Posted on 1/31/2018)
