ABG mix is a premium substrate for tropical vivariums based off the mix developed by the Atlanta Botanical Garden. A precise blend of charcoal, sphagnum peat, fine 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.

Wonderful! Review by PCloudy
Quality
I just built my first vivarium after much studying and research prior to ordering supplies. I chose this because of the research that I made and it's been everything I wanted it to be. I am letting my vivarium "acclimate" right now with the plants and other fauna before I place darts in there in about a month. The plants are very happy with the substrate and it drains well but stays moist enough that my habitat maintains the humidity that I want for my future darts. Thank you Josh's Frogs!

Very convenient Review by Chris
Quality
All of the necessary components are mixed in 1 bag with proper proportions for easy use. We had 6 bags in our order - but none contained a label...however just by sending a quick email, we were able to confirm how to use it and it took only a few minutes to place into the vivarium. We used this mixture to fill the plant cups for planting out plants, too. (Posted on 7/23/2016)

The ONLY substrate for a proper viv. Review by zed

everything grows well in this substrate from plants to microfauna. I wouldn't even consider using an off the shelf substrate in any of my vivs after using this (Posted on 5/28/2016)
Love!!!!! Review by Ilaria

I don't build a vivarium without ABG. This mix is wonderful for planting my vivarium and my spring tails and Isopods live well in it. If you are building a planted vivarium I highly recommend this high quality substrate (Posted on 5/22/2016)
