4-8"
non-calcium sand
humidity increases as he digs
color doesnt matter; what is in it matters. that stuff at the petstore is a ripoff and is bad for scorps.

Look at some online exotics suppliers. I'm afraid I can't recommend any as i'm in the UK, so maybe one of the others can help you. Smile

You could always use bentonite clay as a binding medium to add to your sand. 1 part to 14 parts sand. Works just as well Smile

bentonite clay is very versatile stuff, used for everything from face masks to blast furnace.

I get mine frm ebay. dont buy the beauty grade though that is expensive.

However you can get it from craft shops that specialise in pottery materials
