Where can I obtain these materials?
    #1452239 - 04/12/03 01:22 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

Squirtle is going to attempt the "60/40 Vermiculite and Coco Coir Casing Tek" in a few days. He has already bought enough vermiculite for this project although he does have a few questions.

  • Question 1: Squirtle has a pet gecko and uses "Reptocal" to coat the crickets he feeds his gecko. This insures that the gecko gets all his needed vitamins and nutrients. Anyway, it is a dried white powder containing calcium, phosphorus, and other miscellaneous vitamins. Is this basically the same thing as calcium carbonate, or should I play it safe and look for the real deal? Where do I get this calcium carbonate?

  • Question 2: Squirtle has never used coco coir before. He just simply wants to know where he can go out and buy some.


Those are all my questions. I appreciate all the help in advance.

Yes, you can use the mineral sup for herps but it probably has vit D3, as well. Don't know what the effect would be, but it shouldn't be a prob.

If you want to step up, by some crushed oyster and lime from the nursery.

You can get the coconut husk fiber at a pet store, or use peat :smile:

Yes sir, it has quite a bit of vitamin D3. I imagine I could go out on a limb and try some experimentation. Yeah, so you're saying I could just totally substitute vermiculite with crushed oyster shells? Also, by nursery do you mean any plant nursery? Squirtle thanks you for the help.

Ooops! Sorry if I was unclear :smile:

Oyster shells, like egg shells, are calcium carbonate! :smile: The CaCO3 matrix is just very...organized...so it takes awhile for it to be broken down into Ca+ and CO2 by acids. For faster buffering of pH, use lime.

Keep that verm!!! :smile:

Ahaha, I don't know man. I haven't posted anything too useful yet except asking a bunch of basic questions and trying to help people out.

Oh well, I'm not complaining.
