    Looking for a way to keep my gu's water pan a little cleaner. Have an XL cat litter pan (bought new and clean, of course), and they constantly kick substrate into it.

    Thinking that if I put one of the cat litter "hoods" on it (for covered cat litter pans) it might help. Has anyone ever done this? I just haven't seen it, but maybe its old news.

    What about stacking some natural looking rocks around the base that the Tegu will have to crawl over to get to the water? It should block a lot of the substrate. I am in the process of building a new enclosure now and was leaning towards doing that. I have a dedicated vacuum that I use to suck the water out for cleaning so the container never has to be removed.

    Still useful advice for someone in that situation.
