    You'll get much better and faster help if you start your own threads in the future, instead of hijacking somebody else's thread.
    Also, post in the correct species subforum. This is the leopard gecko subforum, not everyone who helps here knows about knobtails.

    My gecko is knob tailed gecko. I put 2 humid hides (one is on top of UTH) temporarily due to his eyelid linner remaining after shed. This method doesn’t resolve the issue as he doesn‘t like the humid hide on UTH at all. He digged a burrow by himself instead.
    Good to know that fish/dog foods which will lead to build up uric acid in reptiles. I have to change the crickets’ diet. I dusted Rep-Cal calcuim and vitamins to crickets every feed, 3 feeds per week at night. I also wonder whether the supplement is overdosed, however, my geckos are not eating the crickets immediately. I only feed 3 medium size crickets per gecko and the crickets are still running around the tank next day with powder off. What should I do?
    Perhaps Hilde could relocate your portion of this thread? If you post a New Thread in the knobtail sub-forum that will be easy for her. When you click on that forum, look for the button on the upper left that says: Post New Thread.

    You're welcome. I'm glad you figured it out. How old are these geckos? Are you planning to breed them?

    Cut back the crickets to 2 medium ones @ each of those 3 feedings per week. That way they might eat what's served: lightly dusted crickets.

    Have you found a good care sheet for them?

    Can you buy Zoo Med's supplements (Repti Calciums with and without D3, and Reptivite multivitamins without D3) where you live? I love them.
    • They are far superior to Rep-Cal's Calcium with D3 and Rep-Cal's Herptivite!
    • Rep-Cal's Calcium with D3 contains 17x more vitamin D3 than does Zoo Med's Repti Calcium with D3. That's already a bit much vitamin D3.
    • Zoo Med's Repti Calcium with D3 contains adequate D3 for your knobtails. Add Zoo Med's Reptivite multivitamins without D3 @ 1 other feeding per week or 2x per month. These geckos may also need Repti Calcium without D3.
    • Vitamin D3 only needs to be lightly dusted on prey @ 1 feeding per week. D3 is a fat soluble vitamin. It sticks around in a gecko's body. It is not flushed out when they pee.

    Your terra cotta hides are awesome! I've seen round terra cotta hides from the EU. Where do you get them?

    Thanks for the valuable information. I am going to change to ensure that my geckos have good health. My knob tailed geckos are one year old and they give me an egg last week as a Christmas present It is my first gecko egg . I bought the terra cotta wet hide from Japan. It costs only few Australian dollars and it is very handy to use

    You're welcome for all. What a cool Christmas gift!

    I suggest:
    Mondays ~ lightly dusted Zoo Med's Repti Calcium with D3 @ 1 feeding per week
    Thursdays ~ lightly dusted Zoo Med's Reptivite multivitamins without D3 @ 1 feeding per week or (maybe) @ 1 feeding every other week.
    • If you use Reptivite multivitamins without D3 every other week, substitute Zoo Med's Repti Calcium without D3 @ 1 other feeding per week.

    The schedule looks like this:
    Mondays ~ Zoo Med's Repti Calcium with D3
    Thursdays ~
    • every other Thursday lightly dust with Zoo Med's Reptivite multivitamins without D3
    • on the other Thursday lightly dust with Zoo Med's Repti Calcium without D3

    Try leaving a small lid of pure precipitated calcium carbonate in the enclosure for your breeding female.
    In contrast to many supplements, Zoo Med's supplements contain generous amounts of precipitated calcium carbonate with each "dose". Nutrobal is the only supplement that's better.

    That's why I shared: Gecko Multivitamins


    PS:
    Some keepers wait until the female is 18 months old prior to breeding.

    As I already mentioned, if you are going to discuss knob-tails, please move the discussion to their sub-forum. A thread in the leopard gecko forum is not the right place for this.
