  • Fluker's Crested Gecko food?

    Hey everyone! I was looking through [I]Reptiles Magazine and saw that fluker's has a new food for Cresties in pellet form. I can't find anything online about it and I'm not sure if they sell it in Petsmart/Petco/other pet suppliers yet. I don't want to be the first to use the food. Any one else read up on it or try it? If so, I would love to hear some input.
    Thanks alot everyone!

    I suggest that you do a search on the pellets... it's been discussed before, and basically the only conclusion is that the cresties don't touch it.

      There's several thread on here about it if you run a search.

      Consensus is that most geckos won't touch it and it's not good nutrition for them even if they would.

        Might as well offer them a bowl of M&Ms - but that is jut my humble opinion!

          Crap crap crap. Use the diet that Allen Repashy has spent years developing and improving.

          This Flukers pelleted crap is what a 40$ MP3 player is compared to an Ipod Touch.

          AKA I won't touch the stuff with a ten foot pole, and you'll be hard pressed to find anyone here who will.

            I agree its crap but I have to disagree with the point above only because no one NEEDS a mp3 player so a $40 one maybe fine for some people. Hell mine was $30 and I dont use 1/2 the settings on it. Sure its not an Ipod Touch but I don't want or need something like that... while Rhacs NEED better than what the flukers diet offers.

            Just did not want people to get confused between an expensive luxury item and think that CGD is the same.

                Mp3 players are great... Even the cheap ones do the job I need them to however a good diet is alot more important than the newest and coolest technology. I would stick to what you know works well, but feel free to do more research.

                  LOL it was spose to be a product comparison. But I can see where it might get confusing

                  Someone I know uploaded a phone pic of this product when he was in petco, and I like, shouted via FB for him not to buy it.

                  Its bad news in a jar.

                    Yes, someone did that here on pangea as well and posted it a while ago. If I remember correctly... it had chicken meal and corn as some of the first few ingredients. All I could think at the time was 'Whaaaaa?'

                        I agree with the M&Ms comment really lol. Nerds are probably as nutritious as this Flukers stuff.

                            Yeah now that you say that I remember tomato being in it was well. From reading the Anapsid.org pages years ago, Melissa Kaplan had a good point about avoiding all of the Solanaceae family aka Nightshade for all herps. Tomato is a member of that family. I dont even feed them to my inverts/feeders, though, I could maybe do that, I just try to air on the side of caution.

                              From what I've read, tomato leaves are poisonous, not the fruit itself. But hey, I still avoid them anyway.
