Tiger Salamander & Axolotl (Ambystoma tigrinum, A. mavortium spp, etc.) The Tiger Salamanders and the Axolotl are so popular amongst hobbyists that they have been given their own topic. If you're particularly interested in the Axolotl, there is a large section of the forum devoted mainly to beginner Axolotl enthusiasts (not this topic).

Default Brand of topsoil for tiger salamander?

I am having issues finding topsoil for my tiger salamander. I want to use a mix of eco earth and organic top soil. I’ve seen Scott’s and Earth Gro recommendations in old threads, but when I look up reviews for them they’re considered clumpy, full of mulch or sand, or containing live or dead animals.

I’d love if someone could point me toward a great brand. Thank you!

Try Eco Earth or something like that. You can get a good deal on Amazon with free shipping if you have prime.

for my Salamandra, I use the organic top soil at Lowe's mixed with eco earth about 50/50 or 60/40 (60% eco earth 40% top soil). Its very nice, and the Salamandra seem to love it.

I tried to insert a link but its a white a purple bag, called GARDEN PRO.

Hope this helps.
