FrogDaddy FaunaReady LIVE Tropical Vivarium Substrate

23 Reviews

**Most if not all of the microfauna will be on top of the substrate, so when you are adding this living soil mix, hold the bag above your current substrate layer, and slit the bottom of the bag all the way across with a sharp object. This will allow the substrate to “fall” properly and not hurt the bugs in the substrate, and they will be on top. After adding FaunaReady, cover generously with leaf litter. You can also slide slices of potatoes and carrots under the leaf litter to jump start the population.**

FaunaReady Bioactive is a FrogDaddy exclusive mix. It contains a similar substrate mixture to our ABG mix (organic peat moss, premium long strand milled New Zealand sphagnum moss (SpagMoss Brand), fir bark coarse grade, and horticultural charcoal) and additionally contains: compost, frass, humus, and is fortified with microfauna (tropical white springtails, temperate white springtails, dwarf white and / or dwarf purple Isopods, and powder Isopods (of various colors). Please realize we have now separated types of FaunaReady based on Isopods desired as of 3/3/22. Persons with dart frogs, small geckos, and other very small, sensitive species, should choose dwarf species only! PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOU CHOOSE THE PROPER FAUNAREADY.

This is the ultimate starter soil and a 1-step process for your bottommost substrate layer (at a superb value)! FaunaReady Bioactive is pre-fortified with small microfauna (clean up crew) as well as compost, frass and humus to enhance bioactivity and nutrient cycling! This mix still delivers the superior drainage and moisture retention you’ve come to expect from FrogDaddy FloraBoost vivarium substrate.
