I have had a tank with sand drying for about three days now. It seems dry, but if I dig it sorta still sticks together in my hand. How can I be sure it's dry enough?

I assume a desert species........but .........

I've had it under a heat lamp for about two and a half days now. I don't want to make the mistake of putting them in when it's too wet though.

Well, if you've got a heat mat lying around, you can pop that under the tank, and keep the lamp over it.

Double sun power.
