About This Product

Josh's Frogs Coco Brick is created from finely ground coconut husk, sometimes called coco fiber, coconut fiber, or simply coco. Each 8 quart Coco Brick weighs 650g or 1.43 lbs, and will expand when soaked in dechlorinated water. Coco Husk is absorbent, easy to clean and facilitates burrowing. Clean, comfortable, and competitively priced!

Josh's Frogs Coconut Beddings and Substrates are direct from a family owned production facility in Sri Lanka. All of the coconut bedding with the Josh's Frogs label on it is organically grown, 100% biodegradable, and environmentally friendly. Josh's Frogs Coconut Substrates are 100% safe for your plants and pets!

How to Prep: Soak for 15-30 minutes, or until coco fiber is expanded and there are no dry spots remaining. Each Coco Brick will expand to 4-6 times its original volume, based on the amount of water used. Josh's Frogs Dechlorinator Tap Water Conditioner will make your tap water safe. Only soak what you plan to use, do not store wet. 

Recommended Animals: Coconut fiber is perfect for a wide range of lizards, snakes, tortoises, salamanders, frogs and other reptiles and amphibians that require moderate to high humidity. Coco Husk is ideal for spiders, scorpions, tarantulas, millipedes, and other invertebrates as well!

Great Value

I love this product! Very similar to other coco bricks on the market, but much more affordable, and you know it has the care of being made by a company for herps. I always order my substrate here!


cheap and useful

This coco brick absorbs a lot of moisture. Great for humidity and background construction.


Animals love this substrate

This is the easiest substrate to use for a lot of our smaller frogs!


Works great!

My Tiger Salamander loves this stuff!


natural smell

the coco brick gave my tank a natural forest smell I’m sure the gecko enjoys
