    Well he shouldnt have sand substrate as it can cause compaction.

    Different people/care sheets will tell you different things, but I've seen numerous people having sand as a substrate for geckos. I've also learned to ask different people & research different sources as there is a lot of conflicting advice being given both online & by pet shop staff etc

    A good forum I'm on is http://www.reptileforums.co.uk/forums/ - full of everything you'll ever need to know about reptiles

    again like piercing guns, just cos it worked for someone else doesnt mean it will work for you.
    Maybe I just research everything too much and I'd always rather be safe than sorry.
