    My tortoise has a little carpet thing and I scoop her poop off that and I guess since play sand it white you could do the same every day. Dunno just a suggestion.:confused:

    I did the first couple of times, but after that I just sifted through it and never found any bugs or things in there that weren't supposed to be in there.

    I think I'd worry about microscopic or very tiny insects or bacteria that could harm them. I just figure better to be safe than sorry.

    Everyone has their own way which works for them. If you feel the need to bake, then bake away. Some people swear by EE, others don't. Just have to choose what works for you and your tank.

    With this deep clean I am trying,again, the sand/ee mix. We'll see how it goes this time.
