Hi thanks for ur advice. The supplement you use Repashy Calcium Plus is that one with vitamin d in and do u put that one in the viv at all times or just for dusting.

Repashy is used on every feed for dusting live food. You still leave calcium in the vivarium as well. You can get it from lilly exotics. They're the official UK reseller.

As for her appetite, just monitor it for a bit. At that age she may just not need feeding as much.

If you have digital scales it's always good to get weights regularly so you know how's she's doing.

Thank you just looked online and am going to change from nutrabal. I have 2 female geckos I've only just got my scales so have only managed to weigh them twice the one I was worried about went from 47g to 50g in 2 weeks and my other little girl went from 50g to 57g but the shop I bought them at said the bigger one was a few weeks older. Off to buy my new supplement tomorrow night

It's well worth getting.

Nutrobol is made off a 20 year old formula. Repashy is updated as an when it's necessary.

I can confidently say you're even likely to notice activity increase just by using it.

Thank you so much for your help and advice it's nice to hear what works for others that is top of my shopping list tomorrow makes it easier to just have to dust with one thing rather than having to swap between the 2.

It is much much easier lol. Don't get me wrong, people use the calcium/Nutrobol combination with success. But it's hard to determine the right amounts to use of what. This takes out all the guess work.

I can't recommend it highly enough. Just a search on this forum of Repashy calcium plus will confirm how good it really is.
