I have a lot of Eco-Earth, which is just compressed coconut fiber for reptiles, and I was wondering if I could use it in my riparium setup for my Fire Belly Newts. I have a mesh slope that I would take the gravel out of the top of it and put in substrate that would be underwater but still contained by the mesh.
The space is very small but I'd like to put down moss and a couple of very small plants or at least plants that will stay low.
This is the tank I have currently. This is a 20 High gallon tank. There's about six inches from the land portion that I want to put in coconut fiber and grow emersed plants. I also want something that will cover the mesh. -
