    I feed cgd every other day before I go to sleep, I usually feed crickets once or two times a month, I use reptical, I got it free at a breeder show. I have a sub adult, so I might be wrong on this

    My animals have MRP in there tanks at all times and they get fresh food every 3rd day. None of my current animals will eat bugs but when I had a few that did they never at them more than once a week. I used repcal calcium with no d3.

    I swap out CGD every two days, so they pretty much have the option to eat 24/7

    Crickets once a week is the norm. Fresh CGD should be provided atleast every other day. Mine like it older and eat more of it the older it is so I wait 3-4 days. You can choose not feed CGD on the night you decide to feed crickets.

    Use CGD as his main food source and use the crickets as a treat. Maybe once every two weeks should do. CGD has all the good stuff he needs, mine only get crickets once a month or so.

    The CGD requires no calcium, but when I dust the crickets I use ... I have to go and see what I use... Mineral All. A side note to this stuff is because it does contain vitamin D3 you should not use it every feeding. Meaning if you where planning on feeding your geckos crickets more than twice a week I would only dust the crickets once and skip it the second time.

    I use reptical with D3 to dust the crickets or roachs. I change out the food every two days. Welcome to the site and hope you love your new baby! cresties are soo sweet
