i've a golden gecko on newspaper at the mo, and its not very pleasing to the eye. I'm just asking if anyone has the experience, would it work etc, cos i think i would have probs with the sand absorbing too much moisture through the humidity - would this cause a possible impaction hazard? i don't know if the sand would clump together or not, that is why i'm asking. Also would it cause problems with her eyes (no eyelids), or her feet (pads)???????

this is why i'm asking if anyones had experience.

I like the look of sand, but the reps must come first!

Both my golden gecko vivs just have kitchen roll on the bottom. I dont think Id like to try sand due to the high humidy and the sand either clumping together or sticking the the geckos like you said with them having no eye lids.
