 New Uro - Substrate Concerns

I recently got a new Red Saharan Uro (2 days ago). First time owning a Uro and unfortunately didn’t study up enough on substrate and just listened to what someone said while purchasing his tank and other equipment and bought crushed walnut shells.

After doing more reading I’ve see that the walnut shells are highly advised against. I plan on changing it out as soon as possible, but in the the mean-time is there any cause for concern of impaction at this point?

I covered his tank in newspaper and haven’t seen a lot of him as he’s mostly been hiding and to my knowledge has not eaten anything yet.

Any advice on substrate? He’s about 1.5 years old.

Thanks in advance.
