    I think I will be all set. I have Repashy calcium plus supplement now was using the D3 kind until I learned otherwise. I also have calcium bicarbonate to put in the enclosure but now see from the forum not to do that. He is still not eating well that I can see and used to eat like crazy before moving him. He actually left his hot hide today and ate 2 mealworms. Better then nothing I guess. Still feeding crickets but I don’t see him eat them. They hide behind the fake wall on the exo terra and disappear by morning which I assume he ate them or they went under the Carpet. I have a 5 year old son also and I am sure his presence stresses leppy out. The leo I am not sure how old but we got him 4 weeks ago at PetSmart he did not look like a baby. Young juvenile 4 inches. Looks healthy and he is sweet and tame, well was past tense he hates us now since we changed his house. Lol

    Do you mean calcium carbonate powder? You may wish to remove that fake wall. Then your leo will have more space.

    What is his name?

    Repashy's Calcium Plus is an all-in-one multivitamin that contains cholecalciferol/vitamin D3. For very young leos up to 2 months old Aliza recommends keeping a bottle cap of plain calcium carbonate/no D3 inside the enclosure. Sometimes free access to plain calcium causes the gecko to overdue calcium. Too much calcium in the digestive tract CAN prevent absorption of other vitamins and nutrients. (I have more on this if you like.) See below what Aliza does when using Repashy's Calcium Plus for hatchlings. Zoo Med supplements provide significantly more calcium carbonate per dose than Repashy's Calcium Plus and other supplements do.

    Let your leo adjust to all these changes. I think he'll come around. You may be interested in a feeding bowl like the sturdy clear glass tealight holders shown in the video I linked earlier. Walmart carries these. I cut off the back "jumper" legs of crickets at their "knees" to keep them in the bowl. The crickets can still move around.

    Geckos Unlimited Aliza (acpart) has used Repashy's Calcium Plus for all her leos. She has bred leos long term. Here's how Aliza uses/used Repashy's Calcium Plus.

    Repashy's Calcium Plus (all-in-one) multivitamins

    Early stage metabolic bone disease (MBD) problems include uneven (lopsided) gait, bowed limbs, belly dragging, and an underbite.

    2. Feeding & Supplementing JUVENILE leopard geckos ~ Feed 3x per week.

    His name is leppy. His new ultrtherm heat mat came and it is working great in conjunction with the CHE. The ChE connected to a thermostat also it barely needs to turn on. Humidity and air temp is on point now! He did however immediately run and hide on the cool side for a day. Totally hates change and takes days to get him comfortable again after moving anything. Today I am going to get tile cut for his enclosure because he grabs the carpet instead of the crickets and they get away.

    Maybe the same wattage DHP that @Marillion uses?

    I use the 50 W heater bulb for a 20 gallon long enclosure.

    I bought the 80w Arcadia DHP. Was only $1.00 more and when itís on a dimmer I only have to set it a bit over halfway to heat my slat to between 90-92. Gives you room To to grow getting the 80w.
    I use a black heat bulb to heat the air in my enclosure. I also have the exo terra 24x18x12. I love it.
    I just removed the background and replaced it with a ceramic Jungle Bobs. Flat one. Gives you more space and matches my Jungle Bob cave and ledge pieces.

    I wonder whether your DHP by itself is enough to sufficiently warm the air?
