    Default To D Or Not To D3 ?

    Hi everyone, I will be getting a Chahoua baby very soon. I am a little nervous about overdosing the little guy on D3. What is the best way to insure that they get enough but not too much? Should I dust the crickets every time with D3, or use a combination of D and D3? I recently purchased Repashy's Supercal MeD, which has a medium dose of D3. I was planning on offering CGD 3 times a week with crickets 2 times a week, is that too much bugs? Thanks for all your advice in advance.

    I generally do crickets once a week or once every other week for all of the geckos.

    I have not used his supercal, I have always bought:

    Calcium Plus
    VITAMIN AND CALCIUM SUPPLEMENT

    Leachianus - Chahoua - Ciliatus

    I had a fear of this as well when I heard about the potential of ODing on D3. I feed bugs 3x a week (roaches twice, crickets once). I will dust the insects with different supplements each feeding. Minerall Indoor one feeding, Herpivite the next, and Repashy Calcium Plus ICB another. (The herpivite and Minerall were suggested to me by some breeders.) They also recommend to feed the occasional bugs with no dusting at all so as to not overload them with too many supplements when feeding so many bugs. Different people have different opinions though. This is just what I do.

    Yeah, I agree with matt. You're not going to overdose your gecko on D3.
