I would get it off the pellets ASAP as they tend to clump and get moldy when they get moist. They work fine for my bearded dragon and uro who like things dry, but not for my plated who likes to go into the water too much. I keep my plated on regular old cypress mulch that you can get for a couple bucks a bag at HomeDepot or similar place. Cypress, not pine. They can burrow into it, you can spray it to keep moist, and it dries out pretty quickly too. Fairly easy to spot clean as well.
