About This Product

 False bottom (also known as LECA, for light expanded clay aggregate) is a great choice for the drainage layer in a vivarium. LECA is a natural product, made from heated clay. It retains moisture, provides lots of surface area for bacteria and plant roots to grow, and wicks water, which will help maintain humidity in a vivarium.

* This product can range in color from burnt orange to dark brown, almost black. *

How to Use: Rinse with dechlorinated tap water before use. Place a 2-3 inch layer as the drainage layer in a vivarium. Designed to be used with our substrate barrier and ABG to provide ideal vivarium conditions for tropical plants and dart frogs.

Warnings/Caution: Rinse before use. May contain dust.

Light

I like the lightness of this barrier, easy to use and setup new terriums. Will make my terrium come together.

Nice and light

Nice light false bottom that I layered ABG onto. I bought three bags for a 29 gallon horizontal terrarium - stacked up to about an 1.5 inches.

Super light!

I’ve always used hydroballs, but really don’t like he uniform look under bioactive tanks... it’s always seemed off to me. I toyed with they idea of using lava rocks but they were super heavy. This stuff is irregular and light and regulates moisture better than hydroballs.

Nice

Clay balls for drainage. They do what they are supposed to. They stand out in the bottom of the tank and sort of ruin the naturalist aesthetic of it because they are too uniform and produced looking.

Great stuff, bought more than needed

I bought one more bag than what was estimated on the website. I gotta say, they were right on the estimate. Love the false bottom and looks great in my vivarium. Will purchase from this site again.
