Well, if I understand it correctly (and I may not because the whole thing really confuses me,) chams need UVB in order to produce Vit D, which then allows them to utilize the calcium in their bodies. Is that it, basically? And if so, what role does liquid vitamin D play? Can it be used to supplement the UVB lights? Can I alternate Vitamin D with UVB lights, or better yet, just skip the artificial lights altogether and put my cham on the porch during the afternoon sunlight?
Also, is it better to use plain calcium for crickets, or one with VitD added?
And while I'm asking, just how much supplement do you have to shake on the crickets? I've been using about a tablespoonful per bag, but that's turning out to be a little expensive
Thank you
