    Default Crested gecko calcium and d3

    Hi, I am getting a crested gecko for Christmas, and I need to know how much calcium they should get. I will feed Pangea watermelon mango, but there is 1.2% calcium, and read that it should be more, and the phosphorus is only .5, also how often should I feed it to my gecko? Thank you

    Pangaea is a complete diet. There is no need to feed extra nutrients to them except in cases of females laying eggs or if the gecko is already low on nutrients. The diet has everything they need at the proper levels. Adding extra supplements could cause overdosing on nutrients which is not good.

    Agreed. The only extra calcium (with d3) they would need is if you dust and feed them insects. The powder mixes are complete and don't need any supplementation.
