    Hey guys,

    i was looking through and couldn’t find any threads about substrate for antaresia. I personally have found my choice of substrate but would love to know what everyone else uses ☺️

    Kritter krumble in my display tanks. Looks nice and it’s cheap so I don’t mind throwing out a big handful of it wherever my snakes decide to go to the toilet on it.

    Don't like KK, I've seen snakes get it caught in their mouth. My Ants are on chipsi or aspen

    I love Aspen but it can get expensive when you have many. I use newspaper in my racks for ease of cleaning. However I do agree with dragonlover1, Chipsi and Aspen are great bedding for ants and I do use them in my display enclosures.

    All my young ones are on paper towel. When they go up in tank size I use critter crumble and haven't had any ingestion issues. I've also used a few local products like olive pip and crushed walnut shell with no ill effect.

    I use textured tile in half & non slip shelf liner in the other half.
