Great , Where did you get him? yes table is best . I would suggest a strip UV bulb for table too, so they get UV while they wander around. I do use tortoise life substrate for mine ,but it is expensive. I find it does last, I change out once a month and unlike soil it does not get everywhere , like in food and water dish. But it does need watering as it is dry. Is he your first reptile? I started with torts, I now have 2 lizards and a pac man frog. You will still have Viv to fill when he gets his table
