ABG Mix is a premium substrate for tropical vivariums, made right here at Josh's Frogs! ABG Mix is a precise blend we've been perfecting since 2005 based off a mix designed by the Atlanta Botanical Garden. This quality naturalistic vivarium substrate is capable of lasting several years when used properly and is available at Josh's Frogs at an everyday low price. Originally perfected by the Atlanta Botanical Gardens of Atlanta, Georgia, ABG Mix will support a sizable population of microfauna while allowing plants to thrive. Josh's Frogs recommends wetting the substrate with distilled or reverse osmosis water before placing it in the vivarium. Josh's Frogs also recommends providing 2"-3" inches of ABG Mix in a tropical naturalistic vivarium for maximum effectiveness.
