    I read to use hemp for making the rope hammocks etc. But I saw some string that looked just like the hemp cord but it was called jute.
    What is the difference and can you use the jute instead of hemp?

    I have jute in my crabitat. It's fine as long as it's undyed and doesn't smell strong like chemicals. I had to weed through some different brands before I found the right one. It should say "all natural". I also soaked it in saltwater just to make sure it was clean before I put it into my tank. Hope that helps! :)
