Heat rocks are arguably ok or not. Some think that they get to hot and burn your animal and some say to monitor them and if they dont get to hot then they are ok. I have personaly stayed away from hot rocks. If you want 24 hour ground temperatures then i would put a heating pad on the bottom of the tank off to one side for a temperature gradient and the lizard can choose which side to be on. Also sand is arguably ok or not. Some say that sand can be eaten and they can become impacted or it will get in their eyes and nose and cause problems, but lets face it. These guys come from a semi open and arid desert where they burrow frequently. I dont worry about stuff like that unless i see it happening. If a lizard of mine showed that there were problems then i would remove the sand and use carpet or something that is not ingestible. Bed a beast is an ok substrate but i would mix it with some very fine sand and coconut husk, or orchid bark. With this mixture you can provide a few inches of ground and pack it down very well allowing them to burrow as they would like to.
