Default Dusting food

I keep reading different things about dusting food. I was lead to believe that for babies they should be fed everyday nad the food should be dusted with calcium on five days and vit: powder on two days. For adults, they should be fed every five days with calcium on two days and vit: powder on three days. Veg should be lightly dusted and left in always (if needed). Have i got this right?!

I can't believe the amount of people who have read this post and not replied! Its clearly obvious what the post is about so if you don't know anything about dusting food - why would you look? Surely this is either right or wrong so someone could tell me that at least. Maybe if somebody posseses the brain power they might even be able to tell me what i should be doing if this is incorrect. Thanks, Ben

you didnt say what blummin lizard its for dude.
and 6 views including mine isnt a lot lol


I dont know what lizard would only eat every 5 days as adult..

4-5 days calcium, once or twice nutrobol is right for most lizards of whatever size or age.

if they only eat 3 times a week urd go whatever to get that rough same amount.

over ten feeds for example, however they are spread you could go

Okay, I've got rankins dragons and leos. I'll occaisionally miss a few days coz they're getting really big and chunky! I'm obviously doing something right but I want to keep them healthy as possible. Should I put live food in for them every day then? What should this be dusted with? But why bother reading a post if they ain't gonna help the poster? Don't get it!!!!! They might even write that they don't know and it really something i'd need to research on the net!!!!

its a free forum, ppl can read what they like lol.
they may have had trouble understanding what you wanted to know as you seemed to have the 5-2 ca-vits sorted.

every day or other day is fine.
if they eat daily and are still young then daily, if they are fussy on soem days then every other day may work better for you.
