    I got mine at reptile show for $15 for 10kg bags

    After putting it in enclosure, it's best to spray/moist lightly so it becomes compact.

    That way there won't be any compact action issues or mess in sliding doors' tracks!:)

    I got 65kgs of plasters sand (red sand) from landscape yard for $3.85. Been using this sand for past 12months with no dramas.
