I am curious to see how they react to the Repashy Grubs 'N' Fruit. I had less chahoua than I do now when I tried it for the first and last time. I was not impressed with the results one bit. I dont recall any of my geckos touching it and if they did, it was not much. I offered it many times and finally got sick of them not eating it so I fed it to my dubia as a dry mix lol. My care has changed since then and also have more species, so the results may be different if I tried again.Thinking about ordering small sizes to test:
- Leapin Leachies Chewie Fettuccine
- Leapin Leachies Leachie Lasagna
- Clark's Gecko Diet
- Big Fat Geckos Smoothie Mix - Breeder and Juvenile Formula
- Repashy Grubs'N' Fruit
- BPZ Black Panther Diet
... anyone want to give me a yay or nay before I move forward?
Do you have better feeding responses with this diet than with straight pangea?Here is a homemade recipe I offer often:
- 4 packets of organic Just Mangos baby food
- 4 tablespoons of 100% Pure Cricket Powder
- 6 tablespoons of organic, grass fed whey protein
- 2 tablespoons of Pangea Gecko Diet
- 4 heaping tablespoons of Miner-All Indoor Formula vitamins
- Pinch of organic Spirulina
- Few servings of BENE-BAC powder
- Healthy squirt of raw honey
- Water (filling the rest of the single serve blender container)
Dang!! I'm going to have to try that. One of the best things about this time of year is having so much fruit ripe and in seasonI just did the pangea breeder formula with fresh nectarines in it tonight and I have never seen my group go after a batch of food so intensely. One of my males smelled it as I was putting it in the holder next to his tube and actually came out and bit the bowl before I got it in the holder.
Yeah, I have a couple each of apricot, nectarine, peach, apple, pear and plum trees. I’ve processed several hundred pounds of fruit in the last few weeks and have been stuffing the geckos with as much as they want of it, I haven’t had time for literally anything else lately!Dang!!

I mixed up a diet last week with Cantaloupe as the base and while it congealed within 2-3 hours, many of them ate about half their bowls when I put it in the tanks. I really think they like some variety!
Which combinations do they seem to like best?On hand I have Repashy, Leapin Leachie Chewie fettuccini (I think that's what it's called lol), pangea growth/breeder, pangea mango, pangea strawberry and banana. I also have some supplements that I mix in occasionally. I feed each of mine a unique mixture of all of the above lol. They all get a base of repashy then I add in whichever flavor I think they'd like, then add in leepin leachie or the breeder formula for the younger chahoua and more "mainentance" type foods (like regular pangea flavors) for the adult males.
Depends on the Chahoua, lol. The younger one loves the Pangea Growth formula but only if I mix it with the repashy (she doesn't like either by themselves). The older one will eat whatever, lol.Which combinations do they seem to like best?
I mix the Chewie fettuccine in with Pangea breeder, or Black Panther Zoological, or BFG gecko food. I have found when I mix it, I get a much higher feeding response with both the cresteds and chewies.Keep us posted - I haven't heard much about that diet and am curious to know how it's received
I've used the Naked mango juice also, and they definitely seem to like it. You add that into the Pangea Fig and Insects?Out of all the Pangea flavors, the best feeding response I get is from the fig and insects blend. It has the highest protein percentage out of all of the Pangea flavors. I found that when I add a little bit of miner-all indoor formula and mix in a dash of Naked brand mango fruit juice smoothie, the feeding response is even better
