Hi, I currently use terrarium soil with no fertilizers for my horned frog. However, I saw some Eco Earth and it seemed cleaner and I wanted to use it. These are those compressed coconut husk bricks that soak up water and become like 8 times their original size or something. I read that they were recommended in a llot of sites, and so I bought a brick.
However, I was just told that because they absorb water and expand in size, this mechanism is bad because they will absorb all the water through the frog's skin! Obviously, it will be used moist and pre-expanded, but still, will this happen? Is it true or just some crap someone spewed at me again.
