I put this in the other thread but I am going to put it here as well.After researching some threads and some great posts by Beman and kinyonga, I believe that I have a proper supplentation schedule (using Beman's recommendations from a post) and I am going in tomorrow to pick up Supplements tomorrow.
I plan to use:
-Arcadia revitalize w/ d3 (looks like every 8th feeding per Beman's recommendations? That would 3x/month?)
-Repashy supercal no d (every feeding)
With this, do I need anything else (magnesium)?
Should I wait a week or two to start introducing Supplements again? I am trying to detox him, but don't want him to be lacking in other nutritients)
I am also picking up new lighting. I'm thinking he is receiving too much uvb? Until I am able to get the tube lighting, does anyone have any recommendations for dome uva/uvb bulbs (screw in)? Is the uva doubling as a basking light as well?
So Arcadia supplements have to be used with the correct UVI level at basking. So if there is a lighting issue I would not move to this supplement. Make sure you are still using calcium without D3 this balances the calcium to phosphorus ratio of the feeder which is very important for bone health. You can detox them on the other supplements containing D3 or A if these were being over supplemented and the concern is a D3 or A toxicity.
Per your exact question. Yes you could use the revitalize D3 as your multivitamin and repashy Supercal NoD. Your rotation would be the Repashy NoD at all feedings and then the revitalize D3 two times a month say the 1st and the 15th. But again due to the extremely low levels of fat soluble vitamins in this one you have to make sure that the UVB lighting is spot on at basking.
No compact screw in bulbs are sufficient. Your wanting a T5HO fixture and a 5.0 or 6% bulb in a 24 inch for your cage size. This is the best option and the recommended option for chams. Without the correct lighting and distance to basking chams suffer from failure to thrive, MBD, and other major health issues.
