Whenever I try to dust Hazels food with any kind of supplements she won’t eat it. I don’t know why but she refuses. I have calcium with D3, calcium without D3, and a multivitamin. If any are used she may eat one or 2 bugs and that’s all. What could I do to maybe fix this or is not using supplements ok? I have a 40 gallon tank but I am getting a 120 gallon this Christmas, I still have to get something to set it on and hang my tv but yk. I have a reptisun 10.0 T5 24W uvb and a flukers 100W basking bulb.

How much are you using, can you post a pic of how much you coat the bugs ? Sometimes it it's too heavy they just don't like it.

Do the bugs look like a powdered donut or can you hardly see just a bit of the dust ? And yes you can order liquid calcium from Tracie right away.

July can tell they are dusted but they aren’t dusted like a powdered donut or a funnel cake. Just slightly noticeable

Could also be that some supplements just taste horrible. You can also try sephia powder and just use a little less.

Then they cant move and she won’t eat them.
 
I am having the same issue with the calcium dust too I have tried just using a pinch and the crickets come out looking like a powdered donut. Then they don’t move and she really
gives me a hard time eating them. I use Flukers cricket calcium which is calcium fortified. Is that enough calcium?

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
