About This Product

Make an awesome vivarium background for your poison dart frogs, chameleons, or other vivarium inhabitants with the Josh's Frogs Vivarium Background Kit. This kit is designed for 10g, 12x12x12, 12x12x18, or similarly sized enclosures. Make sure to check out our Josh's Frogs How-To Guide on making a vivarium background, called 'Don't Back Down from the Background'. Make sure to pick out the specific pieces of cork flat, cork tube, or manzanita wood for your background - the wood is not included in the kit! The Josh's Frogs Vivarium Background Kit includes:

1. Great Stuff Spray Foam (1 Can)

Great Stuff Spray Foam is the 'old school' way of making a vivarium background. We've done well over 100 vivaria with this background method, and it works great!

2. Vivarium Safe Silicone (10.2 oz)

Josh's Frogs Vivarium Safe Silicone (10.2 oz) should be applied with a caulk gun, which is available at any home improvement store. Make sure to use gloves while applying silicone!

3. Josh's Frogs Coco Cradle (10 qt)

Josh's Frogs Coco Cradle is finely ground coconut fiber, and perfect for covering wet silicone on a vivarium background. Make sure to apply the Coco Cradle to the silicone within a couple minutes of the silicone being stuck onto the background. The Coco Cradle must be dry in order to stick to the silicone.

4. Net Cups x 3

These great net cups from Josh's Frogs are perfect for holding plants in the background, such as bromelaids, ferns, and more! Make sure to fill them with ABG mix or a well draining vivarium soil, and be careful not to overwater them!

Very Happy

Don't forget to make sure your Coco Cradle is completely dry before using. Bake it at 250 degrees in roasting pans or cookie sheets.

A good place to start...

the product is a really well-rounded vivarium kit. some products may not be necessary for your individual need or you might need to purchase other items. overall this is a good place to find a lot of materials.
