Albeit I do only have a few, but you get my drift, I just don't see the logic of saying a kilo of repashy at the same price as 5 kilos of vionate can compare when they both do the same job, end of the day you're paying for the name with those price differences, maybe I'll just have to bite the bullet and get the 16oz of repashy at this time, but if I start keeping more and needing more there has to be other alternatives in the uk surely? That's only reason I ask
If its money then i would sugest getting repashy and if you get more reps perhaps, you could study the repashy ingrediants, get it all over time (correct weight of each ingrediants) and then perhaps make your own.

no rush is there? if he's committed then why not, it'll take time, some ingredients you can get already mixed together, low costing supplements etc.

no rush but the costs involved you would have to make tonnes of it, for it to be cost effective, so either resell or buy a couple of hundred reptiles to eat it all

I'd avoid this, any left over supplement after dusting should be binned to avoid cross contamination. Just slowly gauge it until you're not wasting any. The amount I use is similar to that of a garden pea, and I still get wastage.

The ingredients list doesn't come with weights otherwise everyone would copy it. Repashy has to protect its IP, so it's not possible to reproduce.

Plus I really like Beer but I'd rather let the professionals make it for me

We can supply 64oz bags (1.8kg) for £59.99 delivered in a couple of weeks time (shipment is currently on the Atlantic somewhere!). Potentially, 1.8 kg could last absolutely ages depending on your collection size.

We have commercial customers with enormous collections such as Ray Hine Reptiles that use Calcium Plus exclusively.

Cheers

I like the pepper/salt shaker thing but Repashy is best kept in a sealed container in the fridge. Do you put some in the shaker at the time of dusting and then put what isn't used back into the container?
