    Dissolving calcium powder in any gecko's drinking water does not work. As far as I know the calcium sinks to the bottom unless it's continually stirred.

    Leaving a block of calcium in the tank leaves too much to chance.

    How is your gecko getting vitamin D3? Vitamin D3 is necessary for the absorption of calcium. With NO source of vitamin D3 your gecko will get metabolic bone disease (MBD). It's not a pretty sight!

    A gecko also requires some source of multivitamins.
