Howdy! I haven't gotten any of the supplementation you recommended yet, but she has been in her own ten gallon for about a month now with an incandescent UV bulb and a heat lamp. She's been eating and is much more active now, the calcium sac itself is decreasing in size very slowly as well. I'm feeding her some peach baby food a few times a week and supplementing the herptivite multivitamin with the babyfood about once a week. She's eating superworms a couple times a week as well. Am I correct to assume that her body will take advantage of the solid calcium mass when it can before it takes it from her bones if I provide her with a proper vit. d3 and phosphorous balance? Will baby food made from fruits higher in phosphorous aid in the mass of calcium's metabolization?
