That is all that I feed I make sure that they get enough crickets that there is one or two left on the last day before I get new crickets, so he does has food seven days a week. I just dont have luck keeping a colony of crickest at my house they always get out and it is easier to feed them right away into his cage instead of letting them get out into the house and having to chase them around. The crickes dont seem to bother my gecko and he is of a good weight as of last check. As of the calsium my vet told me that i could back of the use of it because he is not producing eggs and is full grown so is not using it for bone preduction. I realise that the people who make GCD say to use it more often but they are also trying to sell the food so the more one uses the more they make. Again i said before that what i do is not the normal feeding routen but it works over the past four years for me and is just another way to feed. I feed the CGD less because he is less likely to eat it and it is wasted if i feed it to him more often, at this routene he eats most of it. when feed more often he wont touch it.
