    Hi ~

    You have already created a Husbandry, Housing, & Heating thread right here. That's a wonderful idea. Please continue on this thread for all such issues.

    Rainye looks very healthy!

    Please measure Rainye from snout to tail tip. Let us know how long she is right on this thread.

    I use Zoo Med's Reptivite multivitamins without D3 with the other supplements, because calcium with D3 is more forgiving than Zoo Med Reptivite multivitamins with D3.

    Let's feed Rainye 3x per week. That way it's easy to keep her supplement days: Mondays, Wednesdays, & Fridays. See whether she'd like a small snack on Saturdays.


    Adapted for your leo Rainye

    Feed lightly dusted prey 3x per week.

    • Monday > > crickets or dubia lightly dusted with Zoo Med's Reptivite multivitamins with D3
    • Wednesday > > crickets or dubia lightly dusted with Zoo Med's Repti Calcium withOUT D3 (plain calcium)
    • Friday > > crickets or dubia lightly dusted with Zoo Med's Repti Calcium withOUT D3 (plain calcium)
    • Saturday > > (maybe a small snack) > > mealworms, superworms, or black soldier fly larvae (Phoenix worms) >> no dusting
    Does that make sense?

    Depending upon her length, Rainey might be ready to cut back to 2 feedings per week right now. When Rainey is mature (~18 months old), she'll just need supplementing at 2 feedings per week.

    Default Substrate for Leopard Gecko

    Hi! I am planning on switching Rainyeís substrate. She has carpet right now. I know sand is completely out of the picture, and I am looking towards non-adhesive vinyl that is slightly textured. Would that be okay? Thanks.

    Vinyl would work great definitely better then carpet since her nails and teeth cant get caught on it (and it doesnt harbor bacteria like carpet).

    Both Arcadia and Zoo Med UVB bulbs and tubes are top-notch! How frequently is Rainye eating now?

    Rainye's Current Schedule


    Feed lightly dusted prey 3x per week.

    • Monday > > crickets or dubia lightly dusted with Zoo Med's Reptivite multivitamins with D3
    • Wednesday > > crickets or dubia lightly dusted with Zoo Med's Repti Calcium withOUT D3 (plain calcium)
    • Friday > > crickets or dubia lightly dusted with Zoo Med's Repti Calcium withOUT D3 (plain calcium)
    • Saturday > > (maybe a small snack) > > mealworms, superworms, or black soldier fly larvae (Phoenix worms) >> no dusting


    After you install Arcadia or Zoo Med's ReptiSun UVB and Rainye's using it, replace 1-2 plain calcium dustings with 1-2 dustings of Zoo Med's Repti Calcium with D3 each month.

    UVB Weekly Schedule 156 for leopard geckos 18 months old +
    (with UVB)
    Early stage metabolic bone disease (MBD) symptoms include uneven (lopsided) gait, walking on one or both "elbows", bowed limbs, belly dragging, and an underbite.
    The Reptile Supply Company based in Lodi, California stocks Zoo Med's ReptiVite multivitamins withOUT D3.
    Leopard geckos usually reach maximum size at about 18 months old.

    Feed lightly dusted prey 2x per week.

    • Monday > > crickets or dubia lightly dusted with Zoo Med's ReptiVite multivitamins withOUT D3
    • Thursday > > crickets or dubia lightly dusted with pure precipitated calcium carbonate withOUT D3 (Zoo Med's Repti Calcium or NOW human brand calcium)
    • Saturday > > Optional: mealworms, superworms, or black soldier fly larvae (Phoenix worms) > > no dusting


    ***** When your leopard gecko is taking advantage of appropriate UVB rays, Dr. Fran Baines (Reptile Lighting group's lighting guru) strongly recommends a backup dose of powdered D3 @ 1-2 feedings per month! Just substitute 1 D3 calcium dusting for 1 plain calcium dusting during those 1-2 weeks only. *****

    Since she is over 12 months old I am starting to feed her every two days. That seems to be working out thankfully
