NO calci-sand--that stuff is pretty bad--particles are very large and you dont want them eating it. Check out www.karnivor.com and see if their care sheet is up and working. Or you can follow the link at the bottom to another care sheet.
Depending on your humidity levels, I would opt more toward a soil substrate to hold humidity better. If your house is humid, then maybe straight playsand. Although if your guys are really small, you may want to use paper for a few months until they get bigger (fear of impaction). Make sure they get a good basking spot and uvb light. I like the mercury vapor bulbs so you dont need two separate lights.
Have fun with them.

:I just bought two new CB baby Frilled dragons. they are so cute. Right now they are in a 2' x 2' x 1' cage. I know this is small but it should work for now or until they get bigger. What type of heat lamp or other heat source should I use to warm the cage and for them to bask in, I live in in ORegon and the house I live in gets cold during the day and extremely cold at night during the winter. I need to get some substrate and am not sure on the best. Is calci sand good or should I get other? I have one thing for them to climb on but i will get others as well as a water dish. Any suggestions on care would be greatly appreaciated.

:Thanx
