About This Product

Josh's Frogs Coco Husk Brick is a coconut-based mulch that drains well and is coarser than Coco Fiber. Each 6 quart Coco Husk Brick weighs 650g, or 1.43 lbs. The Coco Husk Brick will expand when soaked in dechlorinated water.

  • Absorbent
  • Easy to clean
  • Facilitates burrowing
  • For moderate humidity needs

Josh's Frogs Coconut Beddings and Substrates are direct from a family-owned production facility in Sri Lanka and are organically grown, 100% biodegradable, environmentally friendly, and safe for your pets.

How to Prep: Soak the Coco Brick for at least 1 hour before use. 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: Coco Husk 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!

Recommended Plants: Josh's Frogs Coconut Substrates can also be used in horticulture as a growing medium, moisture retainer, soil conditioner, mulching agent, or root developer for home, garden, or commercial purposes. Coconut fiber can retain 8-9 times its weight in water. In addition to water, coconut fiber does a great job absorbing nutrients, aerating soil, and promoting healthy root growth. 

  • Artificial Plants (when used straight as an animal bedding)

Suitable for Misted Setups: No.

Care: Coco Husk can dry out, so monitor your humidity levels and mist as needed. Spot clean as you see messes. Completely change out every 6 months to a year, or as you feel is needed.

A lot of coco husk.

Don't let the size fool you, this brick expands to make a lot of coco husk when soaked in water. I only ended up using about a 1/3 of a brick mixed with some cocofiber for a background I worked on. Good quality and looks natural in my tank.

Interesting coconut product
