Josh's Frogs Frog Foam Terrarium Liner

Our frog wranglers at Josh's Frogs worked hard to develop an ideal replacement substrate for many of the amphibians we work with. We were after something that's easy to clean (and cheap to replace if need be!), soft, aids in maintaining high humidity without exposing the animal to overly wet conditions, and was easy on the eyes. We also wanted a substrate that eliminated the risk of impaction. After many trials, experiments, and frustrations, we've finally found what we were looking for—and we're excited to share it with you!

Josh's Frogs Frog Foam Terrarium Liner is the perfect substrate for many species of tree frogs, toads, and other amphibians. We've successfully housed Amazon Milk Frogs, Yellow-Spotted Climbing Toads, Red-Eyed Tree Frogs, Bumble Bee Toads, Super Tiger Leg Monkey Tree Frogs, mantellas, Pac-Man frogs, and many other amphibians on this terrarium liner. Frog Foam is also great for quarantine tanks for dart frogs and other animals before they are placed in a naturalistic vivarium.

It's also a great substrate option for vampire crabs!

Frog Foam is 1 inch thick, and comes in a variety of sizes to fit most common terrarium & aquarium sizes.

How It Works

Josh's Frogs Frog Foam Terrarium Liner is one solid piece of foam—no little pieces or loose fibers for your animals to get stuck on, or eat and become impacted! Frog Foam absorbs water and distributes it across its surface, resulting in a moist and humid environment. Simply pour water right into Frog Foam, and watch it get sucked up!

Its blue color makes feeder insects stand out, resulting in a better feeding response from your pets. Josh's Frogs Frog Foam is also very soft, preventing injury or damage to delicate amphibian skin. Think of Josh's Frogs Frog Foam as a high quality memory foam mattress for your amphibians!

The foam is easily cut with a razor blade for a perfect fit (or to act as a "land section" for semiaquatic animals), or to sink a water bowl or other fixture into the substrate.

  • Absolutely zero risk of impaction
  • Wicks and evenly distributes water
  • Contributes to a humid environment
  • Makes prey items more visible
  • Soft and pliable
  • Easily cut and modified

How To Clean

Frog Foam is easy to clean—simply spot clean when waste is visible. Remove Frog Foam from the habitat once a week, rinse out with water, spray to saturation or soak in Josh's Frogs ReptiSan, then rinse clean and replace in the enclosure. You may wish to purchase 2 Frog Foams, so that you can alternate between cleanings.

Sizes Available

Josh's Frogs Frog Foam is available in many different sizes, targeted at standard sized glass aquaria and terraria. The foam can easily be cut with a sharp razor blade for a perfect fit.

Josh's Frogs Frog Foam should be changed every 6 months. Frog Foam will discolor slightly under UVB—this is harmless and does not affect the performance of the terrarium liner. Feeder Insects may chew on terrarium liner if food is not provided or too many feeder insects are placed in the enclosure. If this occurs, feed fewer feeder insects at each feeding.
