Bantam Substrates are a carefully curated collection of inert material suited for all biotypes. They have no effect on the enclosures parameters giving you peace of mind while you focus on the aesthetics of your creation. These hand-picked elements are essential building blocks to the foundation of every mini world. Our substrates are divided into three simple-to-understand sizes: small, medium, & large.
Bantam Gravel is inert and large enough to form pockets for stagnant water to sit as beneficial bacteria forms on the surface. This quality makes it perfect for drainage layers where excess water can collect. Our gravel can also be used as a growing medium for some plants as well as make a solid surface for moss to establish. Due to the natural color as well as non-toxic coating of some of our gravel, these substrates can safely be used with both aquatic & non-aquatic animals.
