Default Leo doesn't like dusted food

He will lick the dusted mealies and just let them roam his faunarium.

However, if I put some un-dusted mealies in front of him, he will gratefully take them.

Should I change the vitamins and/or calcium or should I be persistent and wait until he eats them?

Still don't know what he doesn't like, the vitamins, the calcium or both but I will try to dig it deeper.

Iv also found this!!! What I tried is dusting a few Wax worm, iv never met a Leo that will turn down a juicy wax worm, once he starts eating the dusted wax worm, gradually change the wax worm to meal worm, it worked for me now all my Leos take any sort of dusted feeder, best of luck!!

Dont worry mate, as long as you gutload your live food they should be fine, even try just dusting half the body of the food, i no people may disagree but one of my males hates nutrobol and wont eat it and hes a good breeder an nearly 90 grams so dont worry pal.
