About Our Bioactive Vivarium Substrates

NEHERP Vivarium Substrate Base Kits
Our company's reputation was partially formed around our absolute top-quality vivarium substrates which last long term, grow plants beautifully, and support the life of beneficial microfauna. We strongly urge anyone new to the hobby to familiarize themselves with the tangible differences between vivarium advice offered by pet shops, and what you'll experience at a real vivarium specialist shop. The topics of drainage, pH balance, resistance to compacting, and the mix's ability to support flora & microfauna life must all be considered when creating a vivarium substrate. Inappropriate choices (such as coconut fiber, peat, potting soil, or any mix primarily made up of any of those three) will not have the benefits of a real vivarium substrate, and carry risks of their own. Every vivarium substrate we offer is of the absolute highest quality, and have been proven for years to be long-lasting, dependable solutions for the vivarium hobby. Please check out the Vivarium Substrate section in Vivarium Construction 101 to learn more.

Exo Terra Bio Drain Mesh
▾ Show Price & Description ▾
NEHERP Staff Description:
A soft ultra-fine screen separator by Exo Terra. The mesh in this product carries a unique pattern, and continues to be a favorite for especially particular hobbyists.
Manufacturer Description:
The Exo Terra BioDrain Terrarium Draining Mesh is part of the BioDrain Terrarium Draining System. The non-toxic mesh will keep the underlying Draining Substrate separated from the decorative terrarium top-layer substrate. It also allows proper water drainage when used in combination with the BioDrain Terrarium Draining Substrate, as the BioDrain Terrarium Draining Mesh prevents contamination of the water by decorative substrate particles. It is ideal to create water parts and a biological filtration system in the terrarium using the Exo Terra BioDrain Terrarium Draining Substrate.

Fluval Plant Stratum

An aquatic substrate ideal for water features

Fluval Plant Stratum
▾ Show Price & Description ▾
NEHERP Staff Description:
A great natural substrate for water features in bioactive vivariums, as well as larger water areas in paludariums. It helps to effectively support marginal & aquatic plant life with ease, and lasts long term.
Manufacturer Description:
Fluval Plant Stratum is the ideal substrate for stimulating the growth of aquatic plants in freshwater environments. The substrate's light, non-compacting, porous structure is highly beneficial to nitrifying bacteria, which rapidly colonize the vast porous surface, providing optimal water quality for plants. Plant roots easily penetrate and spread throughout the substrate, allowing plants to obtain a variety of key nutrients that will make them flourish. Fluval Plant Stratum's inherent properties will help support a neutral to slightly acidic pH, ideal for most plant species and species of tropical fish normally kept in planted aquariums. This highly attractive substrate will not discolor water and helps control organic discoloration usually present when natural driftwood is used. 2 kg (4.4 lbs)

NEHERP Screen Separator

The perfect screen separator for use between substrate & drainage layers

NEHERP Screen Separator
▾ Show Price & Description ▾
The same ideal-size screen separator mesh we include in all of our Bioactive Substrate Base Kits! Ours are carefully cut, and are guaranteed to fit the dimensions selected below. Our screen separators prevent substrate from passing through, but allows water to flow freely from substrate layer down to the drainage layer, without any of the water pooling issues sometimes experienced with weedblock or fabric style material. If you'd like a custom, large, or uncommon size, please select the "custom" option on the right side, and simply select the corresponding square inch size. These are shipped rolled, so it's easier to lay out & use immediately compared to folded liners. We often give a little extra just to be sure clients have enough, as they are very easily cut with scissors if necessary.
