Your question was, "but my question is about the kind that usually comes in 2 sheets by zoo-med i believe. Is repti-carpet safe for crested geckos?"
DO NOT USE ANY TYPE OF SAND!!!!!!!! Bearded Dragons are dessert lizards, but the sand in Australia is not like the sand they sell to us at the pet store. The sand they live in is more similar to dirt. It is not loose, like regular sand, also they live in the woodlands as well, so a bunch of crunchy leaves and twigs. But never use sand, not even for leopard geckos! SO HARMFUL. Please never use sand if you actually care about your reptile.
I REALLY do not think it is good to have your bearded dragon on sand, even if you feed him on a separate substrate (which, by the way. definitely hels in keeping your beardie from impaction). Because, and it’s ok if you didn’t know this, bearded dragons like to lick random things, and it may already have sand in his intestines. I suggest removing the sand substrate immediately and replacing it with reptile carpet, newspaper, or a special traction tile. Hope this helps!!

My gecko doesnt get stuck in his reptile carpet. I dont think...
Is repti-carpet safe for crested geckos? has anybody tried it with leachies either? just curious on it because i may soon be removing my waterfall to use it for another project (long story) involving a lot of foam... i was thinking of using Repti carpet so i can feed Crix to my Crested in-tank instead of removing her and letting her hunt in somthing else!Like any pet, reptiles or "herps" require clean habitats for continued overall good health. Reptile urine and fecal matter often contain bacteria, fungi and viruses that, with prolonged exposure, can harm your reptile or even negatively impact human health. The carpet in the bottom of your reptile's terrarium is a breeding ground for health hazards as carpets readily absorb urine and carpet fibers hold on to fecal matter. Cleaning your reptile's carpet requires that you keep urine and fecal matter levels in the cage down daily and that you thoroughly wash and disinfect the carpet weekly.Ok, the only reason i made a new thread was alot of others said that they bough "reptile carpet" from home depot and im pretty sure home depot doesnt sell special reptile stuff!They are now both on reptile carpet and are doing so much better! It's amazing how much better they are doing now that they have proper heating (95F-100F on the hot end, 75F-85F on the cool end...and humidity varies from 29%-45%) and food (spring mix, mustard greens, collard greens, acorn squash, cat food and a tiny bit of banana as a treat) They have a new UV light and they go out side a couple times a week with supervision. I have also started allowing them to explore my house, with supervision too. They are still getting used to my dogs and my dogs are learning to respect their space, like they have done with our birds. The BTS hide a lot but are active when I'm not around and eat like champs!
