Help and advice on shopping for: Decor and Substrate
The finishing touches to make your enclosure spectacular
With the right terrarium or vivarium, heating, lighting and food you can create a suitable habitat for most reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates. However, it takes decor and substrate to make a habitat a home. Our range of top-quality decor and substrate products includes leading brands like Lucky Reptile, Komodo and Exo Terra.
What are decor and substrate products?
Decor and substrate are mostly made up of items to fill your terrarium or vivarium as well as the soil, gravel and other matter that forms the foundation of the enclosure. Some of these products are completely natural, while others are artificial and some are a blend of the two. With the decor & substrate range, you can create a stimulating environment for your pet that is also eye-catching for guests.
Why should I buy decor and substrate products?
The right decor and substrates will lower stress in your pet and make it feel more at home, stimulating it and inviting it to discover new hiding spots. Substrate is also vital for drainage and moisture within your vivarium or terrarium as it can help to hold moisture or absorb it entirely, some substrate systems even go as far as to create various layers of drainage and moisture to recreate specific climates.
What are the main types of decor and substrate products?
Our decor and substrate range is further divided into reptile tank decoration and reptile substrates. Reptile tank decoration is full of caves, artificial plants, natural decor and other accessories to make your vivarium or terrarium the perfect home for any reptile, amphibian or invertebrate. Reptile substrates are mostly further divided by the type of environment you are trying to create as they will perfectly imitate the surface of any forest, jungle or desert.
What should I look for?
Once you have a rough idea of the decor native to your pet’s natural habitat, shopping really becomes about personal preference and creating an environment that is both practical for your pet and looks great in your home. Substrate is a little more complex, but the most important thing is to ensure you have enough to fully line your tank, you may find that you need to buy multiples of some substrates if you are lining a particularly large terrarium or vivarium.
