Default new floor for Gizzy our Leopard Gecko

Hello from sunny Portland Oregn
Gizzy is a Leopard Gecko we have had a couple of years. She always had sand in her viv but I'd like to try something else when I clean it again. What is the best thing & most comfortable for her to use? Will it bother her to have something different?

Hi, I use rough finished ceramic tiles - a nice sandy colour, large ones 600 x 400mm which only need two to cover the floor of my viv. You could also use roofing slates. The advantage of these and tiles are: Much easier to clean, no risk of impaction, no more buying replacement sand, no "squeaking" sand in the glass runners and they transfer heat from the heatmat really well. It may unsettle your Leo for a couple of days - they hate change as you probably know - but it will soon get used to it. The advantages imo are well worth it.
