I just bought Zoo Med's Repti-Calcium (with D3) and I'm wondering how often I should dust my baby Hermann's food. Is 3 times a week adequate?

I live with Russians, not Hermanns, but much of the care is essentially the same.

I tend to dust my torts food quite infrequently, like once every other week.

My thinking is that I'm already providing them a rich and varied diet so that intentionally adding calcium might end up being too much of a good thing.

To that end, I would say that dusting your tort's food once a week is probably better than 3 times a week.

JMHO, I'm by no means an expert.
