    This is only 1 of the studies I’ve found on the subject so I’ll have to do more research on how exactly I want to set this up. I didn’t know that insects of feeding size could get into the fixture...

    Its been a long time since I've posted here but I've been thinking of the idea of using UVB lighting on the feeder insects to increase vitamin D3. I don't really want to go out and buy a bunch of new...

    SpottedDragon I have went outside and collected some dandelion green seeds and put them into a planting pot a week ago. I'll have to see if they have sprouted yet and maybe I could look into planting...

    Unfortunately due to having a very limited choice of captive bred feeder insects that are easily accessible in captivity and feeder insects' ability to pick and choose nutrients according to what's...

    Yes I grind the ingredients separately and then grind the two powders together to get them mixed up and grounded up more. Unfortunately I don’t have a lab so then I can put the insects into the...

    My feeder insects are doing great on the new meal/superworm bedding. I now even feed it to the crickets and dubia roaches. I haven't really checked on the dubia roaches to see if they've been eating...

    I’ve heard that the moon produces uvb but not as much as the sun though. Maybe that’s how nocturnal/ crepuscular reptiles get some of their d3 in the wild.

    If its only been a month then I would say just wait. My gecko used to not use her UVB but now she regularly exposes her head from her warm hide a couple times a week.

    They still do contain that much protein, that's why I dont give them to the roaches. Yes nutrition is complicated that's why I stopped trying to make my own homemade food from scratch and just leave...

    Yes they're the TetraMin fishflakes. Yes I have read that link but I was thinking that perhaps if used with a high calcium formal gut-load like T- rex it would help with increasing the calcium to...

    I have contacted Repashy about this and he claims that just as long as I make sure that the UVB is working calcium plus LoD could work effectively. I’m thinking about asking a reptile veterinarian...
