I use a gravel substrate to raise my juveniles. I only a little part of unbleached (toilet)paper where i put the food on (bloodworms and chopped earthworms etc.) For moisturing just the normal tapwater. This is a high quality water and is clean

I never use paper products, if i did i would use strictly organic, amphibians are sensitive. I use a organic dirt, live moss, and plants over a series of rock layers.

Has anyone ever experienced a problem with paper towels? I've just been using the normal once, rare to find unbleached here.
