    Just want to ask if any one has used it for a bedding material. I was thinking that it might be a replacement for high-fiber (Hill Brothers).
  2. I have some but I haven't opened the bag yet I will be molding several fish next week I may try it on some fins and let you know

  3. I've used diatomaceous earth for agricultural uses. It comes either straight or mixed with bentonite. I wouldn't recommend it for bedding, I don't think it would mix well with water, and the dust is nasty!!! You can get silicosis from it. The one in bentonite MAY work better, but only because of the bentonite, which might be the thing to try by itself.
