Hi, can anyone tell me if bentonite is very effective at aiding the tunneling process? I have just ordered bentonite off the net as aluminium silicate, which i believe is right. Could i have more tips on how to keep burrows from collapsing? At the moment i have a hadrurus spadix and sand which does not allow the scorp to burrow.

I'm using bentonite for my desert species and it works great. Just don't use too much or it will be rock hard. 2-3 teaspoon of bentonite works just right for half a bag of playsand. ;)
