  • not just for cats?

    I checked out his lot and when reading i found this:
    "Substrate: Pure clay kitty litter, no clumping chemicals or fragrances added."
    I mean clearly it can be used because he is but is there any good that can come from using it?

    I've heard of people using this before, but have never actually talked to anyone about the benefits of it. I assume it is just like people adding chunks of red clay to their substrate. It is full of nutrients essential for plant growth.

      idk... I am curious to see if it works well or not... but I am not sure how i could go about testing it... I have no tanks available until I get my split setup finished... then I'll have 2 5g critter carriers available...

            That's a good idea. I have no clue what brands there are. All our cats we ever had didn't have litter boxes. They went to the door and meowed when they had to go!

                That's what I'm assuming happened to mine as well He went out one day and just never came back.

                Maybe some kind of organic cat litter. If that even exists. lol

                  Pepper got into a fight with the Groudhogs that lived next door to us... needless to say I hate them all, even though she was protecting her babies...

                  lol I think there is an organic corn one ;D I am sure there is somewhere lol

                          I've read on the planted tank that the clay kitty litter is a good source of iron since it's made of clay. People use it as a bottom layer sometimes.

                              I've always wanted to try that substrate. Seems interesting...
