Grubs N Fruit by Repashy Superfoods is a complete meal replacement similar to Crested Gecko Diet. The biggest difference is that Grubs N Fruit is comprised of 50% insects and 30% fruit for a balanced diet. The insect meal is from Black Soldier Fly Larvae or more familiar known as Phoenix Worms, Repti-Worms, or Calci-Worms. The BSFL is an important protein source for Crested Gecko Diets in general because of it's complex amino acid base, fat content and calcium to phosphorus level that is unrivaled when it comes to feeder insects -- over fifty times that of a cricket.
Thanks to the nutritionally dense protein source Grubs N Fruit is great to feed solely or mix into other diets at a ratio of 30 to 50% increments. Grubs N Fruit is perfect for gecko species that require a bit more insects in their diet, such as Mniarogekko chahoua (Mossy New Caledonian Gecko) and Rhacodactylus auriculatus (Gargoyle Gecko). Of course other species such as Crested Geckos, Day Geckos, Skinks, Eurydactylodes, Bavayia, and Gehyra will enjoy this Crested Gecko Diet formula.
Mix two parts water with one part Gecko MRP by weight as a starting point. Mixture may seem very liquid at first, but will thicken after several minutes. As fed, it should be like a thick milkshake. Adjust ratio as necessary. If your geckos are eating baby food now, they may be reluctant to switch overnight. Add Gecko MRP to baby food at increasing levels with each feeding to switch them over completely. Feed geckos in the evening. Remove uneaten food the following day.
If unopened, CGD should have a shelf life of at least 18-24 months. Once opened the food should be served within six months. Refrigeration will extend freshness after opening.
