How long does my Bearded Dragon have to be  to have sand in the tank?
He is 7 inches right now. I have carpet from when we first got him(:

Hey Christiana, your bearded dragon does not have to be any specific length to have sand in his tank. Make sure as long as you have sand in the tank that a) he does not ingest too much which shouldnt be a problem and b) you keep the tank very clean for example replacing sand once in a while and cleaning the inside of the tank to prevent buildup.

I can answer every question towards the bearded dragon except for questions that deal with sickness and disease. I can answer questions on heating and UV rays, the questions pertaining to food, habitat, bedding, breeding, egg/hatchling care, nature, and attitude are my best. Last, I cannot help you with at home sickness meds, always find a vet within your area. I can answer questions regarding body language and movement. I will try to help you to the best of my ability.


I have owned bearded dragons for over seven years and have been a breeder for two years. Caring and raising bearded dragons has been a great experience in my life and will continue to play a big role throughout my life.
