Do you have a shed box for it?
How do you like the carpet? I have tried it before at my work and we couldn't stand it, too much cleaning time and hassle. The young ones we keep on paper towels, the older ones are usually on crushed walnut shells. I kept my larger ones on Calci-Sand.

The greenish rock with a hole in it on the upper left side of all the pics is the shed box I have some coco fiber in it and I like the carpit I have no problem with it and I hear never keep leos are crushed walnut shells and Normal play sand is safer then Calci-Sand (Even tho i wouldn't use nether with leos)

I know, there is tons of debate as to what is at all acceptable as a substrate for these guys. I always used Calci-Sand and walnut. I never once had any issues with either. I would only use loose substrates on adults though. Babies are more susceptible to impaction. I don't know if I agree with any other sand being any safer than Calci-Sand. I have heard they can't break it down, but it seems like for problems to occur it has to be in large quantities. This also seems to be the case for things like mealworms eating their way out of their stomach, impaction in adults, etc. something has to be wrong in general for these problems to develop. From my experience and that of every one I have talked to, these are too rare to simply be caused by sand or mealworms, healthy thriving adults do not seem to be at risk for these issues.
