Hi I'm new to the forum and I have a 4-5 month old female veiled. I have her in a 18x18x36 reptibreeze cage, reptisun 5.0 18" linear tube, she gets 5 large crickets everyday and I dust with calcium(no d3) every other feeding and use herptivite once a month, I mist her cage for several minutes 2 or 3 times a day and have a drip system going for like 8 or so hours a day
