have you tried just putting the calcium in a much smaller dish, like a jam lid or a milk bottle lid, thats what i do, i only put calcium in though not nutrobal, i dont know about other people, if there is both nutrobal and calcium in the dish together perhaps it reacts somehow.

Not totally sure with leos, but pretty sure they can OD on vitamins, think you're only supposed to off calcium. Im sure someone will correct me if im wrong though.
this is very true, they can get vitamin poisoning, it can be very bad for them. although i expect they wouldnt be licking from the dish very often, i have calcium in all my vivs and its only really the gravid females that lick it and even then its not very often.

Im not sure about that one but i went down my local reptile shop and she told me i didnt need to buy the calcium, practically refused to sell it to me because she said my female would need the vitamins aswell as the calcium as shes going to loose all of her nutrients developing eggs, Im no sure myself but thats what ive been doing.

Correct me if im wrong, i could do with steering in the right direction

I seem to have done well so far, she has produced two eggs one prob dud the other prob infertile, but this is her first clutch. And shes back up to a nice healthy weight with a great tail. All thanks to her love of locusts and waxies lol.

My male wont even touch waxies but she eats em like candy! Its a good job i restrict them cos i hear they are addictive. Shed eat a whole tub if she could lol Fat old moo!

nutrobal has calcium in it anyway, personnally i would just dust the crix whatever with it a couple of times a week, with literrally a pinch in a bag and shake them up, and just leave a jar lid with calypso, or grated cuttlefish in the viv, they know themselves if they need extra calcium and will lick it if they do.
And on the contrary to all of this GUT LOADED crix or locusts is far more important.
