top soil/play sand is great.though can be very heavy.so i tend to just put a tray or two in.

Hemp < is perfect. Also known as (aubiose,hemcore) U can get a big bale for £8.50 < it'll last ages also. It's safe if it's ingested so no chance of impaction.

I have a pebble area in mine n used to have one in the garden. Make sure they're bigger than the torts head.i've got a little bugger who will try to eat anything.
