Sent you a PM. Phone me and we'll get it sorted for you hopefully.
I was going to pick up a second one just in case. Wish I did now.

EDIT:Here are a few pics of the stuff. As you can see it's quite coarse but wont have you fooled for being the real thing but for under £7 it's not a bad buy. If you decide to order 4 meters of more expensive stuff from somewhere I would be willing to buy a meter or two off you if you didn't want to keep it all.

your better off with what you have.
i have the artificial grass type and its a weekly chore fishing out the grass bits that the turts have pulled out of the matting into the water.
when this stuff runs out i'll be def going for the matting type.

I agree with steve - it might look nothing like grass, but it's going to do the job far better than many types of artificial grass which do tend to come apart, or get dirty quickly.

Still no signs of banding on the egg ~cry-wtry

How are you finding the green matting?

I find the green matting easy to clean with a damp cloth, happy with it as it's easy to clean their food off and seems it's gonna be looking in good condition for a long time as long as it's kept clean.

shouldnt really be any food on the matting,turtles should be fed in the water as they need the water to help them swallow.
