    Default Repashy Superfoods: Leopard Gecko Calcium Plus

    On most websites it says to dust food with calcium and vitamin supplements alternatively. I've also read that with the Leopard Gecko Calcium Plus, you don't need to dust with anything else or leave a calcium bowl for them as long as you dust every meal with this stuff. Is that true? It sounds a little too easy so I just wanna make sure. I might also keep the calcium bowl for a little extra security unless that would be bad for them.

    The repashy superfoods calcium plus icb comes up several times and recently as well. If you do use it at every feeding there is no reason to keep a seperate calcium dish in your tank. I dust 1-2x a week with the repashy icb but I also keep a dish of calcium in the tank since I don't dust every feeding.

    Repashy Calcium Plus has both the calcium and the multivitamins in it, no additional supplements are required.

    Okay, thanks! And yeah, I saw a lot of comments on it, but not specifically about using it in conjunction with other supplements or using it without so I just wanted to be 100% sure. Thanks for the quick replies!

    Allen has actually recommended NOT using any extra calcium with his product due to the risk of calcium oversupplementation.

    Ok, so if I have a prego or ovulating or breeding female, and i am dusting every feeding... do I need an extra bowl of calcium without D3 in the tank? Or will she be fine if I am feeding about 3 or 4 times a week and dusting every feeding?

    If you have a female in that condition I believe it is always recommended to make sure they have additional calcium for what they're losing thru the egg making process. I betcha Allen prob has a recipe for laying females... Tony... any ideas here? Maybe send Tony a PM maggie, I bet he has a link or email addy for Allen. I think I might have it in a Pm I'll have to double check.
