the heat question was actually separate from the cal question , i know uc can giv vit Dthrough lams, but iwas just wondering, 40 watt light bulb and hotrock, vs heatpad. my lamps alil too big, ihave to take the lid off too feed him evrytime , meaning i have remove its s to drop crickets in, will that stress it out??

The exoskeleton of arthropods are in chtin and ave no bones, for that they dont need calcium.
If they have an alimentation appropriate, they dont need anny vitamins or mineral surplus.
