Good alternatives for paper towel?

Hey there, strangers of the internet. As the title suggests I'm searching for an alternative substrate to paper towel, which had been working for a little while but now my beardie has starting nibbling it and sometimes eating the fibers while hunting crickets. It's started to show in his stool although there are no further health concerns, I'd like to avoid any vet visits if possible. I'd love to hear you guy's input on what I should use instead, repticarpets and loose substrate are out of question but I hear tile or cabinet liner works well... Is this true? If it is, which of the two would you most suggest?

Either are good options but unless you have the ability to cut the tile it might be hard to get the fit you want.

I have questions about bubbles on our bearded dragons eye.

So he’s gotten bubbles on his eye. We wiped them off and it’s only been twice in the last few weeks. Should we be concerned? No coughing or congestion. He’s very hungry and sleeps well. He’s 8-9 month range. His humidity is 30-40 day time and as high as 50-55 at night to early morning.
Should we be concerned?

Currently trying not to stress over my anemic dragon....she is being treated, but I don't agree with her treatment plan and have been seeking out a second opinion from another vet. If anyone else has dealt with anemia, please let me know how it was resolved. I am losing sleep over this :cry:
Another post lol. My beardie does not like enclosures. Her tank is the kids room and she has created a nesting/bed spot in the corner. She will cuddle with my son but she know when the lights are out and the kids go to sleep, she literally goes to her bed like she is our 3rd baby. I love her. And to think, I never wanted a beardie lol
