    I am not a big fan of the liquid. For one, you can't tell how much calcium you actually have in the fluid or if it is settled caked in the bottom, and being liquid, a lot of it just runs off into the bowl.

    The Repashy Calcium Plus is all you need.

    I'm a little confused, I can understand using that for dusting her feeders, but as a dish of calcium to keep in her Leo's enclosure shouldn't she just be using Pure Calcium without all those other vitamins and minerals added???

    I use the Calcium Plus in my dish. I don't dust my feeders, because they are all properly gut loaded.

    i think mine are properly gut loaded to, i use calcium water from flukers and th orange food from flukers too.plus they get oats so my cricks eat pretty good,so is that good enough?so u say to put the calcium plus in a dish and just let her lick that when needed? these little guys are so confusing!!!!!

    That's hardly a gut load. My inverts get twelve different kinds of vegetables daily, and one type of fruit and protein source.
