I think it

A. depends on the turtle. softshells really need sand-not gravel. i had a small snapping turtle eat so much gravel that it couldn't swim to the surface to get air.

B. would be easier to clean sand even if that means the poop just sits on the surface of the sand for several days. gravel, i think will entail vac the whole thing every week

that's what I think
