Crested geckos are nocturnal so UVB is unnecessary anyway. I would recommend using Miner-All I (indoor formula) or Low Vitamin D3 dust from herpnutrition.com. Rep-Cal contains too much D3 and can possibly lead to D3 poisoning if overused, especially with nocturnals.
Tor_de_Fartz, you shouldn’t be mixing Rep-Cal with Reptivite. Rep-Cal is designed to be mixed with Herptivite (can be used with miner-all I on occasion). Mixing it with Reptivite is giving your geckos to much D3 and A. Rep-cal like I said contains too much D3 IMO to begin with, plus you are adding more through the Reptivite. Rep-Cal does not contain vitamin A but it does contain Beta-Carotene, which is converted into A inside the body. This is actually a healthier means to supply vitamin A, as to much straight up can cause poisoning also. I suggest using one of the two brands I mentioned above.
