What kind of sand do you guys use for your nephrurus and diplodactylus?

I've used "fine blasting sand" from Amstone co. for years, now. It's the perfect grain size, relatively dust-free, and CHEAP. I pay about $4 for 50 lb. bags. It holds moisture perfectly for burrowing Nephrurus.

I started using premium sand from Home Depot...its been working fine so far. I think it might be a little like Toms sand...

Hey aquapimp, that sounds like a silica sand. You should check out to make sure that it isnt as silica sand dust is deadly to animals, and in large amounts dangerous to people.
