    I keep Blaptica dubia. I've never kept discoid roaches.

    Try small hornworms. They are naturally high in calcium. Most leos love them!

    Hornworms are soft-bodied. Superworms, like mealworms, have a chitinous outer layer.

    I really can't say. All leos grow at different rates.

    How is Iggy doing for regular supplements?

    My girl hangs her booty off the top and the back of her rock cool hide cave. Then she poops over the edge, she’s been hitting the fake plant lately. I put paper towel under it, silly!
    Above is her poopy rock.

    Here's the Repashy's Calcium Plus (all-in-one) multivitamins schedule that GU's acpart (Aliza Arzt) has used for all her leopard geckos ----> breeders and non-breeders. You may need 2 different powders.

    -----> February 2019 -- "I've been using an 'every other' feeding schedule with Repashy's Calcium Plus since 2009. Adults get fed Mondays and Thursdays. They get Repashy on Thursdays.

    "I fed juveniles and hatchlings 3 times a week. (They would be getting mealworms so there would always be some in their bowls.) For juveniles I'd dust with Repashy's Calcium Plus at every other feeding. For hatchlings 0-2 months old & any slow-growing leopard geckos under ~6 grams, I would also dust every other feeding in addition to keeping plain calcium in the cage 24/7."

    At about 6-7 months old, my girl is 8” long and 55.12 grams as of Sunday. I weigh her every week since I got her.
    I got her on 12/21/2019 and she weighed 22.85 grams. So she’s more than doubled her weight in almost 3 months. She eats large mealworms and some dubia roaches. Had crickets for awhile but they were a hassle.
    Wednesday I get my first batch of a Phoenix worms in. I’ll see if they mix well with her mealworms.
    She’s not too big on eating the roaches.

    I don't think feeding mealworm pupae would be harmful. See whether Iggy likes them.
