A lot of people are urging me to pick a clay-based substrate. Finance dictates that it be Turface or Oildri; however, the nearest Turface outlet is 60 miles away and health considerations mean that it will be at least a month before I can get there, Walmart, on the other hand, is 3 miles away! And wity the price of gasoline, I gotta add $10 to $15 to the cost of the Turface if I go that route.

Someone gave me a sample of Turface, so I wetted the two (after filtering out the fines from the Oildri). The Oildri was twice as big, about appleseed size (a negative) and a darker red (a positive).

I have read testimonials of people who loved Turface as a substrate. How about Oildri? Is there anyone on the forum who has been having great results with it?
