I must say that I am quite impressed as well as shocked that the product in question actually works as said.
The moment I put it in the enclosure, my beardie tried to eat her own cave because the calcium powder fell on it.
She's been much more active ever since I put 2 bags in.
I do think that the orange color is a bit pricey but it blends well enough with the standard option to make it just worth it.
Healthy edible calcium powder sand for reptiles is the best idea I've seen pulled off yet and I may even make another purchase as soon as next week.
Tex the bearded dragon loves it

We've been using Zoo Med Vita-Sand since we rescued Tex. I only replace the full tank 1 time per year and sift the sand during the rest of the year. I replenish it as needed. The sand is fine and a nice color. Tex appreciates it.

Don't buy for reptiles

I have two breaded dragons. They like to dig so I provide sand. I feed them outside of the sand to prevent them ingesting it. But this is so horribly dust that it coats everything in the tank. I changed the uvb bulb after 3 weeks of changing the sand it it was even coated in the dust. Don't use this in a dry environment.

Best sand ever

This sand is the best thing ever to have for our pet...

I’ve been using this for about 2 months and I find it pretty ok, although the sand in a water bowl with how it taints the water is annoying and it’s left my lizards sort of orange tan ish color, but overall for a reasonable price I say this is a pretty ok product, my lizards aren’t getting any impaction and it’s easy to clean. I would recommend for anyone with a beardie since that’s what I have and they seem to like it.
Not packaged properly!

Bought for our bearded dragon
on Jun 11, 2020
Thought this would be a great idea for a bearded dragon. For the first few days our bearded dragon was dark black because he didn’t like it but it was a change for him so that’s understandable. But the sand has a smell to it which made my sons room stink horribly. For a 16-year-old boy to tell me that his room stinks without me having to tell him, says a lot! Lol! We had to throw it out and go back to using the green fake like carpeting they sell for reptiles. Would not recommend and would not buy again.

The orange color is pretty and soft... but has left my poor beardie bright orange from tip to tail. Not to mention that if some sand ever gets flicked into the water bowl, the color can seep into the water itself. It is certainly pigmented- but far too much!
