Nice looking viv, good effort, awesome like kinda like a ancient mayan type with all the ramps, pillars and the big open surfaces.

That tunnel on the left i'd fill that with soil tamp it in dig a short tunnel out if it and try to get him to dig his burrow in there.

Mine loves his borrow, gives him his own secure hidey hole.

Rexx is much happier he has his as he dug it himself so its his safe zone.

Throw some cockroaches or marios in there and he'll dig them out good exercise.

All your levels and walkways look awesome. Might have to steal some of your ideas and mod mine.

Just standard B&Q/Homebase TopSoil should say its been screened and sterilised and Childrens Play Sand.
They will both be sterilised against anything toxic or biologically harmfull and screen against any foreign objects.
Mix 60%soil 40%sand give or take, and tamp it in so its nice and tight to stop it collapsing.
Both will be really moist but thats ok.
