as far as clay ingredients goes, i've been using the kitty litter despite people saying its lousy. it gets the job done. where are you located? perhaps another frogger in the area can help you out w/ some material?
Yeah its the exo terra one it came with, I have a 6500k linear cfl I can put in there.
Wish I knew others here on DB but I'm in Chicago if anyone wants to help an Ent out.
