Thanks for your suggestions everyone, I'll be looking into all your suggestions!
With the new version of Repashy it does claim to contain more substantial amounts of protein necessary for growth in the diet... people sticking with just Repashy and leaving out insects tended to notice that their cresties grew slower than those with a varied diet.
Personally when I had my crestie, I liked to include Repashy AND live food, if only to stimulate my little guy to be active and hunt. He was not an avid eater and insects occasionally kicked him into gear!
