What’s the best flooring?

Hi! So I recently upgraded Oslo to a 4x2x2, but can’t find a floor I like. The mat I had before was really inconvenient because the poop would leak through and I would have to scrub it on both sides & let it dry (the bottom side was some sort of fabric and took forever to dry) and by that point by the time I put it back in there it was time for him to poop again. So I’ve been using paper towels until I got the new one in.

I thought about loose lay vinyl, but then I have to buy 4x more than what I need, and I can’t find any with no adhesive AND enough texture to make it easy to move on.

I want to stay away from loose substrate because it seems less sanitary & Oslo is terminally ill. I also wouldn’t be able to inspect all his bowel movements as well as I can when he passes on a smooth surface it cannot seep into.

I thought about this mat from dubia.com, but it has 0 reviews and I can’t find their return policy incase I decide it isn’t what I’m looking for. 4x2 Rock Mat

Lots of options here. Reptile carpet is cheap and easy to clean, tile is more expensive but last forever and it doesn't get easier to clean. I like tile because you can get some nice natural rock or sand looking tiles.

I haven't seen that rock mat- I would get some textured NON adhesive shelf liner from Walmart or your local home improvement store- I use ceramic slated tile - it's not expensive - but it must be cut w/ a tile cutter some home Depot stores will cut it for you just measure it inside the tank-- if you decide to go w/ that--- shelf liner cut it to the size of your tank clean w/ vinegar and water 50 50 solution - you can use thick shop paper towels under your tile i do not have my tile sealed or grouted so I can pull those tiles for better deep cleaning- the paper towels catch the watery urate-

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
