i keep mine on lino, and have had a lot of people comment on how natural it looks (especially if you manage to get hold of some stone effect). I originally had my 1st leo on calci-sand but removed it after reading up on impactation. Personally i'd rather not risk it but, as said its your own decision. The only thing i'd advise with lino is try and get it as thin as possible, the thicker stuff with extra backing can give off smelly fumes due to the resins & glues used. I got mine from a carpet shop for 10 for a massive peice that ended up lining 3 vivs twice over.


herea a pic to show you what it can look like...
