    It's fine to leave mealworms in a small dish with Zoo Med beardie food all the time, unless Cleo and Predator are too full to eat their crickets.

    Did you receive both Zoo Med's supplements? Both Repti Calcium and Reptivite contain good amounts of plain calcium carbonate.

    Please scroll back to post 9. That's where you'll find the Feeding & Supplement Schedule.

    They should get D3 calcium and Reptivite multivitamins on different days.
    • every Monday: lightly dust with Zoo Med's D3 Repti Calcium
    • every other Thursday: also lightly dust with Zoo Med's Reptivite multivitamins without D3

    That's all...no plain calcium for healthy mature leos.

    Yep, I got the two suggested supplements and have been following the schedule. I also got the curved meal worm dish which might make it easier for her to eat, since I should be able to put amputated crickets in there too. The crickets are chirping like they are in a hotel, so annoying!

    Can you keep the crickets in the bathroom and close the door?

    (Pretend like you're in a meadow on a warm summer day with a field full of crickets! If their chirping bothers you, that won't help.)

    PS:
    Are Blaptica dubia a feeding option? They are quiet.

    That is exactly what I do, lock them in the bathroom. They aren't too bad until you try to sleep. Hopefully they will start to shut up since it's getting colder out.
    Just saying now they got the beardie food, the lettuce, and a paper towel for water it's like they're in a 5* hotel

    Those crickets are livin' high! They have it all! Inside temps are what they know.

    : Maybe earplugs would help you sleep?
