Helloo! I have recently going through yet another phase of wanting to spend more money on my gerbils and buy them a ton of new things. One thing I came across was Zoomed eco earth coconut fiber substrate. I saw it on a Victoria Raechel (hamster owner/youtuber) video and was wondering if it can be used for gerbils as well. I'm thinking of getting a little container and filling it with the dirt for each of my gerbils.
Right now, I have aspen shavings, carefresh paper bedding, botanical hay, and sand in their cages but if you have any other ideas on substrates to add, let me know.
I use hemp bedding (Ecoshiv atm, UK only), it used to be harder to get hold of in the US, but not sure that's still the case. Anyway, I found that Hempbed (made in Canada IIRC) and Ecoshiv smell nice, and the latter holds tunnels quite well by itself, the former needs a little help with hay and cardboard.
There's a few threads about hemp bedding in this forum if you want to know more (I was going to post a link, but I can't find the thread atm).
