you could not have made a better comparison than with young box turtles. they will just burry themselves and never come out on their own. the gravel i have in my hatcling/yearling soft shell tank is smooth, very fine gravel. i've only found it at 1 pet store so far, and its about 22 dollars for a 50lb bag. i'd say its 1 step above sand, fine enough for them to just get a few pieces over their shell so they feel safe, but big enough that they cant burry themselves and never come out for food. i also catch my spiny soft shell basking quite a bit. he's now big enough to burry himself completely under the gravel yet he stays most of his time swimming and basking with my hatcling sliders and cooters
