I remember now, the online shop 'petzoo' closed a few months ago, therefore everything to do with the website has been delated!

after reading one of those links, I noticed it says that you should offer a small bowl of calcium in the enclosure as well.
I've never heard of this, so should I start adding a bowl of calcium?

No - just keep to the normal dusting of live food and you'll be OK.

Cheers for the new links, got duped last time i was in my local family owned pet store (I prefer to find family run businesses if possible rather than the chain such as 'Pets at Home' etc but after this i'm enraged..) just over a week ago, whilst deciding to 'spoil' my newly discovered 'lady reg' buying her a new backdrop etc, was enquiring about their stock of substrate, was enticed by his salesmanship over the calci-sand... saying it was best thing since sliced bread.. how when the beardie would accidentally eat her substrate would benefit her.. well half my fault for forgetting everything i had read on here years back whilst i was setting up my beardie.. totally spaced the fact of what i had learnt on here a few years back, (£20 worth he stated to fill the viv, 4 packs of £5 a pop of my money down the drain..) cleaned her out gave her a bath, filled her up with this nuclear looking stuff, then i must have had a flashback or something as I doubted the credibility, and came back to the forum that i started on before i even got my Reg.. (must have been a flashback..) but everything i had heard of the horrors of calci-sand came back.

So a long story short i understand where i was duped when i shouldn't have been for frequenting this forum back when i was (what i thought..) a complete novice back before i got Reg, into buying this calci sand, after realising i cleaned out and refilled with playsand from argos (As i always had..)15kg for £2.99 by the next morning.. my problem is just that they can sell, not only that encourage and promote the use of it. I saw the 'Shop Beardie' they had and he looked so depressed and docile.. all i have been looking for is the evidence to be able to print off and take in to tell this shop of the dangers not only are they putting on their own beardies, but the other owners who may not be as sceptical as me and will just take what they hear off of a salesman at face value, basically all i can say is thanks mybd :) ive found my answer through you again to confront my local store and hopefully it will make a difference :)

Trouble is that the reps. selling the stuff to the shop are so convincing and will poo poo all our evidence to the contrary. :evil:

Use a mix of playsand and sandstone slabs from a Garden Centre. Cheap and easy to clean plus the sandstone helps keep claws short and retains background heat in the viv well.
