    I’m not sure. That’s the only ingredients info there is. Doesn’t it say at the bottom vitamin D 8,000 min IU

    Also I’m so happy and proud of the little one! I just fed them crickets and I didn’t have to hold them with the tongs! She stalked and ate them all on her own! I’m so happy! But I definitely think she has a sight problem. That was pretty obvious by how she stalked them. Poor thing. But she did it!

    Yes it does. Both Herptivite and Repashy's Calcium Plus LoD are multivitamins.

    According to my Repashy's phone contact this afternoon, Repashy's multivitamin products vary not only in D3 content. In addition Repashy has SuperCal and SuperVite.

    A fraction is necessary to convert IU/lb to IU/kg.

    "Repashy's Calcium Plus
    Guaranteed Analysis: Crude Protein min. .2%, Crude Fat min. .2%, Crude Fiber max. 4%, Moisture max. 8%, Calcium min. 17%, Vitamin A min. 200,000 IU/lb, Vitamin D min. 20,000 IU/lb, Vitamin E min. 2,000 IU/lb."

    Oh okay. So which one should I use? But yes I’m very proud of both my little girls! They’re doing so well. The bigger one just shed and ate it so she didn’t eat much. She also LOVES my boyfriend. She loves to crawl up into the nape of his neck and cuddle and sleep and if she gets up to explore the couch she always goes right back to his chest or neck to cuddle him again. Hopefully the little one will start to move around more too. It seems like she only explores when she can follow her big sister. But alone she doesn’t move much. I’m just glad they get along so well. The bigger one actually takes such good care of the little one. They cuddle and the big one just protects her if they feel scared. It’s so sweet.

    So they’re both eating now but which vitamins should I give them and how often? (Out of the vitamins I have. Unless they really aren’t the right kind then I’ll have to buy a new one)

    These are all the supplements I have. I use the multivitamin once a month and I dust the crickets with the other 2 every other feeding. The crickets always are gut loaded with cricket crack and other veggies and fruits.
    No bullying by the way. They get along great. They cuddle a lot and have their own spots. I’ve never seen them fight or hurt each other and they have no fresh scars or anything. I honestly think the small one might be blind if you guys know anything about that? Maybe that’s why she bum a into things and doesn’t react to sight and never opens her eyes all that well.
    I’ll take out the dish of calcium too. When I bought them the guy super misinformed me. He told me they are exactly the same as leopard geckos just a different pattern... what an idiot.
    I’ll try posting the video again too. I just wanted to answer those questions.
    Also I read about something called stick tail? Where they get white spots like the ones she has? Maybe that’s what’s wrong with her? Cause unless she was born with MBD there’s no way she could have gotten it at such a young age. She’s so slow and deformed in her movement and her behavior that she’s always acting like she just was just born or mentally challenged or something...
    So they’re both eating now but which vitamins should I give them and how often? (Out of the vitamins I have. Unless they really aren’t the right kind then I’ll have to buy a new one)
    Please share a video of the larger gecko walking around (with more lighting). Do your crickets and dubia always have Cricket Crack available 24/7?

    I use and recommend these Zoo Med supplements.
    • Zoo Med's Repti Calcium with D3
    • Zoo Med's Repti Calcium without D3
    • Zoo Med's Reptivite multivitamins without D3

    Feed at least 3x per week.

    Supplement as follows:
    Each week
    Monday - lightly dust all feeders with Zoo Med Repti Calcium with D3
    Thursday - lightly dust all feeders with Zoo Med Repti Calcium without D3

    @ 2 feedings per month & in addition to the above
