i actually am not the dyin tail dude i just replied to his post because i noticed a couple small black dots on my chams tail and was not sure what they were. the only problem i am having is that Gonzo keeps his left eye closed quite regularly. i gutload my crickets with "Gutload" i bought at petland.. not quite sure of the exact manufacturer as i have thrown the box away, also i throw some carrot peelings, and pieces of potatos. i dust the crickets once a week with "Rep-Cal Phos-free Calcium with vit D3" before i put them in the terrarium. i also spray him once a day with "Zilla Humidifying spray tropical mist... it says it helps with dry skin and shedding problems, has emolients and aloe. i mist the terrarium for a couple minutes twice a day with distilled water until he starts opening his mouth and licking lips, and right after i put an ice cube on top of the screen top so it drips onto his leaves. although i have never seen him drink off leaves. the humidity does fluctuate quite a bit as i am having troubles keeping it steady. but for the most part between 50 and 60. i DO have those cheap dial gauges and am upgrading to a digital thermometer/hygrometer. i really want to give him a little bit larger enclosure with a real plant and more ventilation but at the same time i live in calgary alberta (dry mountain climate) and think i would have a heck of a time keeping humidity levels up with a screen cage. man oh man!... im really sorry about the novel and greatly appreciate your advice im just really concerned about making things perfect for him asap.
