Personally, I really wouldn't attempt it as it's not simply a case of altering your leos sleep patterns. The physiology of leos is geared towards crepuscular / nocturnal activity, so trying to encourage yours to be active during the day would prove incredibly stressful for your leo and could potentially cause severe health problems.

With regard to the substrate, I personally wouldn't use loose substrates such as zeolite powder or calci-sand, but would choose either lino or tiles (ceramic or slate) instead.
