cling film over the top, but make sure you have a kritter keeper type tank for this to keep up the airflow...or have holes in your cling film.
Also dumping lots of water on the substrate, but not TOO much as you dont want anyone to nearly drown if down in a burrow

false bottom enclosure is good but can be heavy if you have a large enclosure. however it does mean less maintenance with spraying every day

Read a little bit through the forum. You'll find the answers to most of your questions pretty easily that way.

On the front page is a category of forums called "learning the hobby" -- the false-bottom instructions should be in the tutorial section (I think it's a subforum).

You can use a product called Hydro Balls as a low weight alternative to gravel in a false bottom enclosure. They are small clay balls that weigh next to nothing and have additional advantages over gravel as a water filter. Leca clay balls are the same thing. Google either of those for ideas.
