Loose Substrate - is this Okay?

I was about to purchase this loose substrate off amazon (https://www.amazon.com/Critters-Comfort-Coconut-Reptile-Substrate/dp/B07NFCXYXF/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8) but wanted to make sure it was okay before pulling the trigger. "Critters Comfort Coconut Reptile Bedding Organic Substrate - Fine, 21 Quarts"

My three year old bearded dragon has been digging a lot lately and am planning on her new tank having a substrate with a mix of Play Sand/That Bedding/Slate Tiles

I cannot find any reviews mentioning risk of impaction for bearded dragons, only reviews mentioning it was too fine for other reptiles. Looks great from what I can tell so far, but it is still coconut husk.

Thank you

NO …. not for a bearded dragon .

OK for a Bluetongue skink though ( looks like course Kritters Krumple that I use for BT skinks mixed with shed eucalyptus leaves and bark ).

Tiles or lino or a few layers of paper towels are best for bearded dragons.

My female bearded dragon has recently started gasping for air all the time. She can’t get sleep or really do anything because she has such a difficult time breathing. I think it might be a RI but I’m not completely sure. Any thoughts?
