I was feeding my little gaston crickets that where ownly fed on bug grub(calcium based food mix) the crickets started to eat it and then they went off it.So i went to my local pet shop to buy powdered calcium which you dust the crickets with however gaston doesnt like the powdered crickets and is refusing to eat them hes just buried himself for about 3-4 days and has just gone to sleep. He woke up this morning and i have resulted in feeding him non powdered crickets because he hasnt eaten in a few days is there any way in tricking him to eat powdered crickets or am i just gonna have to keep using bug grub and hope the crickets eat enough so that my little gaston gets all the nutrition he needs.


also i have changed his crickets from small browns to blacks ALSO, the blacks are bigger in size. He ownly ate one which he bit in half and hasnt eaten anymore since.He is only a baby and i am wondering whether i might have over done it on the sizing of the crickets and that is why hes not eating them.

at the moment i have resulting in going back to small browns this morning could someone help me as i am not sure on what to do on this matter.
