Good product! By:
I'm really happy with this. This is the first time using any type of soil for my leopard gecko and I sure am happy. The brick was more than enough for my gecko's tank which is a foot in width and 4 feet in length. If I have used the other half of the brick, it would have filled the tank at least to an inch or two of dirt. So far I have not seen any mold and I constantly keep the dirt wet. My gecko wasn't too happy about the smell at first but he got used to it very quickly and this is the first time I have actually seen him get a good night sleep. He used to have paper towels instead and would always be up. I'm glad I bought this. Plus it makes my tank look great!
ALOT of soil in a small brick once in water By:
The the brick came, I was worried that it was too small but then I realized you had to soak it in water and it expanded HUGE! That little brick turned into a load of soil. Very pleased.

  • Add water to HydroBalls to increase humidity levels for all tropical reptiles
  • Use HydroBalls and Mesh for landscaping real plants - keeps plants in place
  • Use HydroBalls with a pump to create a waterfall and generate water flow for optimum filtration

The best of its kind By:
They have other brands that say it’s good but out of all of them I would have to say the hydro balls work the best
Five Stars By:
very good
Five Stars By:
Good
Great product By:
Love this product but I did see it cheaper at petco (in store only not online) the hydroballs do wonders for keeping the proper humidity in the Vivarium.
Good Choice By:
 Exactly what I expected. I would have done business locally, but my local shop was out of stock. Same as big box pet stores and more affordable. I am using it as substrate for salamander habitat. I laid a piece of garden fabric on top of it, then a couple of inches of Exo Terra plantation soil. I'm happy with my purchase.
Rock underground “ water excess bottom “ for vivarium. By:
Strong clay balls,my micro fauna like to run around them like a subterranean highway in the vivarium.
As described and on time. By:
As described and on time.
I guess they're great By:
Work as expected though I'm not positive what they do.
My "Go To" Vivarium Base By:
I have several vivariums. I've several different types of materials for the "false bottom". When I bought my first bag of the ZooMed HydroBalls I tore down a vivarium and rebuilt it using the product. It is now growing far better than before. I have now purchased several more bags and tore down my remaining vivariums to rebuild using this product. It performed exactly as described and now all of my vivariums look much better. Very glad I tried that first bag!
Five Stars By:
Second time using these and they work great with increasing moisture in my turtle enclosures.

This is the chia pet of substrates. By:
This is the chia pet of substrates. It is highly adaptable for a multitude of critter keeping. Perfect for retaining moisture, pretty to look at and very natural feeling as well.
Easy to use By:
It is much cheaper to buy them here in bulk than in stores which charge about twice as much.The first time I used this item, I ended up soaking it with too much water and the substrate became too moist for my tortoise. I found it easier to control the moisture of these items by actually trying to break apart the brick into pieces first. It isn't super hard to do so, but good to be careful because some pieces may be very sharp and painful when it is dry. After breaking the block into pieces, you can add water, and they will be just right.When the block is too moist, it will stick onto my tortoise and cause a huge mess, but after making it less moist, it was much better. This substrate makes it very easy to clean off any uneaten foods and poop that my tortoise left behind. I don't have to change it on a weekly basis either, so it is great.Will continue to buy this item in the future.
Amazing for the price! By:
This is so much substrate for $3! My little sister uses it for her hermit crabs, who love to dig and hide in the substrate.
Husky amount of husk By:
Takes a bit of work to tear it apart, but otherwise you get a ton of husk for your money. My tarantula seems to love the substrate a lot, and it holds moisture well, without molding.
Great price & quality By:
Great price, great quality, great customer service. I ended up not needing this product and wanted to return it, i was reimbursed in full and was told to keep the item.

Great value..came as described..perfect substrate for our hermit crabs..
