sand is not advisable for young beardies, many people (including me) would never use sand, even if it was an adult.
the risk of impaction is too great, they could die from it so i don't take the risk myself. (i myself hate the sound it makes when it gets in the glass runners too!)
tile, lino, non-adhesive shelf liner, kitchen roll and newspaper make great alternatives!
