i use t-rex...expensive but really good stuff...comes in 2.0 and 2.1..2.0 being for omnivores and 2.1 herbivores..for geckos would use the 2.0 but just use sparingly..

you need calcium in a dish not multi vit! if you over supplement vitamins it can cause major problems!!!!

T-Rex for calcium
Nutrobal for dusting crickets with..

nutrabol is good as a multi vitamin suplament that should be given every other feed.if you want calcium then just grate a cuttle fish up on a cheese grater.this is the best you can get an very cheap to.my leos love it but they aint so fussed on their nutrabol.

if you don't want to spend on the t-rex the cuttlefish thing is a good substitute..much cheaper too!!:smile:

but yes you should really have the both..don't go mad on the supplement though!! make sure you gutload your live food well and you won't need to use it quite so much...

i mix a 3:1 ratio of calcium:neutrobal at all times in to a cake shaker so i know my leos are getting a bit of both all the time. if u ring birmingham reptiles and pets they use limestone something instead of calcium powder,its a lot lot cheaper and has been fine wit my leos since the word go

does anyone else use sandfire gecko dust????? if not why not thats what ive been using and im not sure if its right as noones had any experience with it
that's the one that is designed for geckos by geckos? yes!?:smile:

they do ones designed for other reps as well..got a whole load of white tree frog dust whilst in florida last time for about £1! nothing wrong with it, it's just most people use a generic formula rather than one specifically designed for their individual reptile..they all do the same job just vary in price...
