No problem! Pet stores can have awful information sometimes. *sigh* I didn't realize the sand was bad for beardies either until I found the forum while taking care of the little one. I was in the process of negotiating with my manager on changing the substrate for our store beardies to something safer when our pet store was closed. I hope the forum is able to help you out! They gave me a lot of basic information on beardie husbandry while I was on there.
