Awwww! He is so cute. I love when they are that small, they are so cute. I remember when my female was that big. Oddly my Leo, the male, came home when he was in the third or fourth stage.

awwwwww he's so cute.
are you dusting the crickets the night befor feeding or on the day,
i do it the night befor,and dip potato in the calcium dust and feed it to the
crickets and locus.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

Yes, make sure to feed the crickets with calcium dust covered veggies, like lettuce, red pepper, and the things that your beardie would eat to make them more nutrtitional.

That's wierd. The crickets (and Marley, my male beardie) absolutely adore parsley and red peppers. For some reason whenever Marley eats them he goes completely hyper lol

I thought beardies are not supposed to have parsley and red peppers.

No, occasional parsley is fine (I give it to him about once a month, just a small sprig cut up in his salad) and red peppers are really good for vitamins and calcium, i think it is. This has been vet-approved information! ;)
