I can’t speak for other species, but I’ve used this sand for my leopard gecko for the past 12 years. I’ve never had any problems with him eating it or causing impaction. Easy to clean up potty breaks on and water I’ve accidentally splashed on it doing water changes has clumped and I just scoop it out.
I have several small geckos and this is perfect substrate for their tanks. I have used this for over 15 years with no problem. Place the bag in the tank, THEN slowly cut the top and lift the bag. This reduces the dust. I do wash my tanks outside, then replace their sand. Before I take the tanks back inside, I use a paper towel to wipe the sides. Mostly so the thermometer will adhere back to the glass, rather than to remove dust. This is a great substrate for small animals, you just need to develop a gentle technique.
This sand is terrible for bearded dragon's it's super fine so when they move around it causes dust to circulate in the tank. There is a chemical smell to it that witch made her not want to be in her tank. The worst part is it stained my beardies bottom half... was a waist of money
I would not recommend vita sand. the substrate is too fine, smells funny, very dusty and doesn’t clump well.
