For Christmas, we got our degus an aquarium for a digging pit. I was told to use half chin dust and half organic compose. When we asked for organic compose, only one store said they had it and it was organic potting soil. I just want to check and make sure that this is safe for my little degus. The brand is Hortibec and the ingredience are: Peat Humus, Peat Moss, Sand, and Perlite. Is this what you use? Is it safe for my Degus? Thanks!
Also, how did you stimulate your degus to dig? Just let them play in it for a while?
