Hey Guys,

So my question is, how do you guys prefer to deliver your gecko's supplements. I have a few geckos in my collection that its like trying to get kids to eat their vegetables, in terms of supplementation. First I tried putting their calcium/vitamin mineral powder in a bottle cap, so they could lick it up, they wouldn't touch it, then I tried dusting their food with it, and their eating habits have dwindled since I started doing that. What do you guys do to deliver your geckos supplementation.

Thanks.

If I have a gecko that doesn't seem to do well with dusted feeders (either the gecko isn't eating much or is taking so long to eat that the feeders are grooming all the supplement off themselves) I will occasionally (less than once a week) dip my finger in water, dip it in the supplement and then rub it off on the geckos' mouths. They usually lick it off their mouths. I don't put calcium with D3 in the cage directly because I'm concerned about the possibility of over supplementation.
