    Hi Katy, welcome to the forum.

    What has already been said is 100% spot in, you'lll struggle to keep the substrate dry, especially since EWD's require a higher humidity than beardeds. Your best bet is just to keep it clean.
    I had 3 EWD's, quickly reduced to 2 due to incompatibility and fighting, then down to 1.
    This is the enclosure I built, as you can see, half of the floor is a built in aquarium. The substrate I used was play sand from bunnings mixed with kritters crumble, which helped keep it mould-free. I used a multi-layer approach to the substrate (pond liner, rock bed, eggcrate with mesh, then the substrate on top), but this is mostly due to the fact that I had a large body of water and expected a lot of that water to end up in the substrate

    Awesome!
    Sure do. I took these after Boxing Day while we were out camping locally. They were up early waiting for the sun and giving us some serious eyeball for being in their spot. IMG_0881.jpgIMG_0888.jpg

    That set up is bl**dy awesome, I wish we had done that instead of buying the enclosure we have now.
    Its that a massive piece of cork bark? Does that mold at all?

    Thank you again, will totally borrow that design
    Katy
    Hi Katy its just a fish tank . The tank and the top part of the enclosure were purchased from Amazing Amazon and then stained.

    There are 2 huge bits of cork bark in there and as far as I am aware there is no issue with mould. It requires a bit of maintenance though as Missy prefers to poo in the water and the filter only does so much

    ahhh brilliant, its a really really lovely enclosure.

    Yeah Im trying to work out a way to keep their pool clean when they are outside, because Im sure there wont be a filter heavy duty enough for EWD floaters lol

    Build your own filter. I did for my turtles. Within days you could count pebbles about 600 mm down from the pea soup look when I first turned it on. Crystal clear water. Only cleaned it about every 4 years.

My partner thought they had beardies out the back of his workplace, showed me some pics - yup, water dragons lol.
