I have a 20 gallon long (for now) terrarium or whatever for Rambo and I'm finally getting him good substrate. I'm going to be using this:

And this:

Do you think one of each would work? PLEASE REPLY SOON I'M LEAVING IN A MINUTE :p thanks!

8 quarts will be enough I tend to stock up when there's a sale

Okay, good :) Yeah if there was a sale in the store I'd probably get more, but I only have little Rambo and I soak him all the time so he hasn't even pooped or peed in his tank yet, so unless it gets too gross I wont have to change it too much.

Personally, I don't like the eco-earth. It gets all over their food and makes a mess.

I think one bag of the Forest Floor will be enough for your habitat.

Okay, thanks for your oppinion :) I'm going to use what I got so I can see what works the best for me. Plus I want him to have a lot of substrate so he can dig, he's been digging a lot at his walls lately and I feel bad he has nothing to dig in except the gross pellets that are finally being replaced, thank gosh I have money!

I love the Forest Floor by Zoo Mde. Even if I don't use it for a substrate, I sprinkle it all over my indoor and outdoor enclosures.

eco earth is great! It keep the humidity up, and I've never seen mold. I have used it and like products for my reptiles for years.

I used a bag of the same cypress mulch and 2 bricks of eco earth for my 40g breeder which is 36 x 18.

Your 20L is 30 x 12, so 1 of each should give you more then enough.
