very nice leo. i dont have a leo but i have a crestie. id love to be able to feed worms to mine if not for impaction issues. i hate but tolerate crickets though ive overdone the crickets and he's lost most interest in them. id love to find and feed him Dubia (illegal by law) or pheonix worms (hard to find).

there's formulated MRP for cresties along with a calcium dust for the gecko. they can live solely on the Rephashy MRP but crickets to give a balanced diet. theres a good amount of fruit flavors in MRP but its not like feeding them baby food or certainextra sugary foods. baby food is edible to them but its not a proper item to give them ie too sweet, low nutrition and probably high fat content.

the MRP is pretty easy on the wallet depending on the amount of MRp in the bag and the amount of geckoes you have. i did look into leo's before chosing cresteds but the 247 insect keeping disuaded me. i dont like crickets and they're trick things when they escape. i caught 2 already.

Yeah feeding a crestie baby food alone will lead to MBD

Yeah if they get really scared and get their tails pulled on, they can drop the tail. This usually isn't fatal but it is on open wound so extra care needs to be taken when/if this happens. Yes the accepted minimum is 10 gallons for one but I wanted to give him some extra room. Thank you for the complement too :)
