it depends on whether you want a naturalistic set-up or an easy to clean one. if you want it easy to clean go for paper but if you want natural i'd say go for either top soil or eco earth.

well personally i'd go for a natural look but iggies tend to eat all the plants so it can be awkward to keep looking nice. maybe an iggie owner can help ya out better :smile:

Sand is a no-no for Igs for a start. They do lots of tongue flicking for chemical cues and risk ingesting substrate so anything loose needs serious consideration. Whenever I have had Igs in my care I have always used linoleum as a substrate simply because it's easy to clean and can't get ingested. Ig's being herbivores make a lot of mess when they defecate so any substrate with absorbent qualities is going to soak up urate and harbour bacteria.

yes its like astro turf but not grassy, more of a thick mossy look. I think you can buy all different types though and some are more grassy than others :)
