coco bedding is what i use for my burrowing amphibs. i use either a mix of Black Jungle's coco bedding and dendro bedding or coco bedding and t-rex's forest bed. i generally add a bag of Black Jungle's lose tree fern fiber for every 5 bricks of bedding, but it is not necessary. you should not add any fertlizers unless you have live plants in the tank, in which case, i would recommend dyno-gro fertlizer mixed with water and add directly to the soil surrounding the plants roots and not through the entire tank. the Black Jungle products stay fresher longer and don't contain extra salts, like many of the commerical coco bricks do.
below are pics of my 150 Gal. tiger sal tank. the area covered in moss is a rock cave that they can hide in. there is b/t 4-8" of soil throughout the tank to burrow in. the water bowl is not in the pics, but it is 9" x 12" x 2".
