    Question on Pyramiding

    Can anyone help?

    I'm new on learning the different kinds of bedding that can be used, but can anyone tell me if there is a difference between Sphagnum moss, peat moss, and coco coir?

    Like I have posted, I am wanting to build a tortoise table soon for my little guys. However, I currently use dirt as their substrate but not too thrilled with it because it makes everything really dirty along with the tortoises. I have seen people using hay and/or sand and I was wondering, what...
