Yea I don't know how people keep up with repticarpet. You'd have to have several and throw one in the wash everyday! You don't need that kind of extra stress. Sand isn't the cause for parasites..it's the impaction and death, RI and well you know all the other stuff. Go with tile. If you ook closely enough at that picture I sent you you'll see it doesn't look like tile it looks like a baked rock and natural. Truth is thats what they live on ...baked earth. They avoid sand as much as they can in nature. The desert area of australia they are from isn't like the beach like sand some think when they hear "desert" it's hard baked earth. Have you tried a baby blanket(don't laugh hahah) ? they love to bury themselves in sof blankets when they're tired or into pillows and other cozy tight spots. Give that a try along with tile. You can get it cut to fit for free usually and it's sooo cheap. Then all clean up is will be a spray and wipe...takes 2 seconds.
Also honestly he is old enough to have a playsand dig bin outside of his viv. Not for him to live on but 20 30mn play time wouldn't hurt. Alfafa pellets are a bit safer but ehh he will be ok with the play sand. Just make your own dig bin out of whatever you have around the house and give him his digging time if he seems to really need it.
