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

We use quite a lot of Repashy Calcium plus. Not on the scale of Ray Hines etc but were feeding close to 200 geckos per day at the moment. In our opinion its by far the best product on the market. Cost wise its quite economical but cost aside, the positive results in regards to health, appetite, activity, colour and egg production etc etc makes it worth every penny. We had been unhappy with the various supplement regimes we have tried over the years but since making the switch we have total confidence in Repashy Calcium plus. The resultant effect on this yrars hatchlings can be seen in the picture section. This seasons hatchlings are the most robust and vibrant we have produced in the years we have been breeding.

That sounds good Mal, especially with talk of comparison to previous products etc, how much repashy *approx would you say you use maybe per month feeding 200 geckos?

I doubt Im using more than 16 oz a month when were at our peak with hatchlings. You dont need masses of powder on the feeder insect. Just a pinch goes a long way. Too much supplement is as bad as too little. I dont have the figures to hand but I did get the exact amounts per weight of feeder from Allen Repashy , its tiny amounts. You only need a very fine dusting. Anything more soon gets brushed off the insect. Get a pack and try it, you will soon get an idea of how much or how little you need. Remember it does degrade once the pack is open. We put some of the pouch in a tub and keep the remainder in the fridge. I prefer to get it on regular basis rather than a bulk buy and risk it loosing quality and effectiveness.

I think it's cheaper to order it straight from Lilly Exotics?

By 99p, I assume for eBay costs. But some people feel more secure with an eBay purchase? At least I do in some cases.

I understand that but in this case, it's the same people and they take paypal on Lilly Exotics too so why not save 99p.

(thanks for checking the saving, I was being lazy)

I don't mean I return the leftovers to the bag, I just leave it in the tub for the next feeders, but yeah I can see that that is not the best, so will try can reduce the amount I shake out of the bag.
