I have a question on the very first picture of the paucidens. I have one as well and i was wondering if its necessary to have all those other things mixed into the substrate? Because all i have mine is beach sand. Its small grained and i bought it from a reptile house. Do you think i need to add anything to it?

I keep mine on coco fibre.

But really, they like a mix of coir and sand about 50/50

Like the small rocks you buy for the bottom of your tank. Often have colors.

they kind of remind me of pea rocks...
cause i have a 40 lb of those type of rocks in a 55 gallon freshwater aquarium...
it only cost me like $4.00 for the bag..

but maybe you could use that instead cause most aquarium gravel has that annoying dye you have to wash off and than theres never 100% assurance you get it all off...

its up to you, im just saying, the pea rocks were much simpler and i did less cleaning on them
