I use exaclty the same product to feed crickets to my p. cinereus and a. opacum. so far no refuses at all. they will bite till the last cricket disappears I am very satisfied. I know they are ingesting food with correct ratio of minerals when not feeding in lumbricus terrestris (probably the best food for caudates out there)
hope i´ve helped
Jorge, do you actually feed Reptivite to the crickets? I thought it would only be good for dusting...?
I feed the crickets "Cricket care", also from Zoo Med, that's supposed to gut load them as well: Natural Cricket Care™
Hey Eva. Not really you missunderstood. I dust the powder in top of the crickets and them feed them to newts. What i use to feed crickets its 100% only pure carrots. They love and it gets them with amazing amounts of carotenes!! Good for Paramesotriton juvie bellys!
i highly recommend “buyanaxolotl.com”- ive purchased from them and received a beautiful animal for relatively cheap, in great condition, and excellent shipping precautions. the breeders are a couple living in georgia (i believe, don’t quite remember) and they’re fantastic. sometimes their website contact page doesn’t work, so i’d probably try just emailing them. good luck and happy hunting!
