I raised a hatchling southern alligator lizard under a 60 watt External Ballast MVB using only calcium dust and well fed crix, silk worms and pheonix worms. He is a year old now and thriving. To be perfectly honest, I flat forget to use the vit dust! The crix are fed dark leafy greens, mixed grains, some high protein cat kibble or chick starter, and some veggies, so my shiny little lizards get all of their nutrients from the feeders and I keep a small salad in every cage, regardless of whether that particular lizard is "supposed" to eat salad or not. Most at least nibble greens, and if they don't eat it, the feeders will.
