Hi there.

I would not recommend sand for a beardie any younger than 6 months of age. For a beardie that young I would recommend a non-particle substrate such as paper or tiles or something similar.

After this I would recommend childrens playsand :)

i was considering something like carpet tiles of something, if not sand, it just looks so boring with newspaper down

I'm using paper towel for my baby BD's for the time being. I think I'll be ordering some repti-carpet though, I think it looks pretty good!

Repti-carpet is good (you can get one that is a sandy colour), slate looks good too (B&Q).

Or what about cork tiles?

Or floor tiles that look like stone?

would def stay away from sand mate, its to risky, and it gets in the glass runners and makes a terrible noise when you open the viv,im gonna put floor tiles down on all mine, they look nice, i find the crickets get under the repti carpet and hide and its a bugger to clean
