Keep in mind trash bags are water proof.

There is the good chance that the garbage bag will just hold the moisture that seeps out and doesnt air dry. so your bottom layer of sand will still be damp.



secound thought.

If you had multiple garbage bags you could do stages with the sand.

First bag - wet sand
Secound bag - top layer of first bag after its "dry"
3rd bag - Lower layer of first bag after top is removed - let it dry

repeat.



third thought. Use a hair dryer to help the process of drying it. Just make sure you dont get so close that you shoot sand everywhere. *only use on the wet wet sand*

hi thank you for your reply.
i have now actually got them on tiles,
once i moved them into their new home,the trouble would have been that the sand
would have kept spilling out and getting stuck in the glass sliders,
the tiles are easy to clean,and i don't worry about them eating any sand
at dinner time.
:)

had it perhaps been for a small water dragon,perhaps i would have
used the shelving for a split level,however it houses three leopard geckos,
two live together,the other is seperated.

the reason he's on his own is because his flat mate died :(
i can't put him with the other two as there is a size difference.
i have a feeling that they are all females though.
i would like another to go with Morph perhaps a lovley looking mac snow.
we'll see what the future brings.
frogs sound interesting.. any particular species, if i could i would love to keep
poison dart frogs.
