Problem? That's a strong word. It could be. I would just say that you should provide it simply because most Softshells love it so much. It helps to make them feel secure. You'll get much better results in general if you provide sand throughout, with a special area where the water is shallow enough for the turtle to bury in the sand with its snout above water.

In addition, it's a lot of fun to watch them do what they do naturally. To see them disappear into the sand in a matter of seconds is just plain cool.
