I'd do a hotter basking spot than a beardie - and we use a sand/soil mix in our ackie viv, but other than that (and eliminating greens from the diet but keeping the bugs) I'd say the care is similar. We find ours do well if we mist the cage a couple of times a week - they definitely like having somewhere more damp to hide when they want it.

Although some caresheets recommend feeding meat/rodents, I personally do not; I'd rather feed them the more expensive insect diet that ensures they won't become obese.
