For crested geckos, you don't need that much supplements. Also, if you are feeding the Crested gecko diet powders you don't need any supplements at all and shouldn't use any as it will do more harm than good. The crested gecko diets, especially the Super foods one from T-Rex are complete diets, containing all the nutrients crested geckos need. It isn't even necessary to feed additional insects either, though a few crickets or worms once in awhile for treats are fine.

You didn't mention if you are feeding anything other than insects. Crested geckos are not big insect eaters, they are more half insect/half fruit eating animals. Also, they don't need supplemental D3 at all as they are nocturnal.

The only time I ever give supplements to my crested or gargoyle geckos is plain calcium powder in a small low dish for my egg laying females to prevent calcium crashes from shelling eggs.
