I use slate, it's the best, no need to replace it and looks fantastic.

Calci sand is awful, as far as I'm concerned, it actively encourages reptiles to consume it, as it has calcium present. I can't say I understand the point of it, as we're all aware of what damage sand consumption can cause.

I'm allergic to roaches and mealworms which causes an asthmatic response. I take an antihistamine before I do any rep feeding or insect maintenance (gut-loading, cleaning etc). I'm lucky I suppose in that my rep room is away from the house.

I agree with the others about the calci-sand. Slates are much better. Shop keepers don't sell slates and won't get repeat orders like they would with the sand. I hope your OH finds out what it is that's causing his reaction.
