I recently bought some Exo-Terra Calcimize for my new dart frogs thinking that I could introduce the calcium into the wildlife of the tank. I have a waterfall section with small pond/rock/leaf area that they love bouncing around in. I have been dosing the water per directions for 3 gallons (amount in tank and pump at given time) and I'm just wondering if any of you think that having calcium directly in the water that circulates the tank/plant life might help in the same way as a a clay background does to supplement calcium to our frogs?

I actually don't use any water conditioner-- I've been pulling water out of my freshwater fish tank to do water changes and transfer that over into the Terrarium. Since the tank has been set up (before frogs) the plants have been doing much better with my aquarium water. I think some of the nutrients in the water is helping, vs using distilled or bottled water. I use my freshwater test kit to make sure my levels stay good and that I wouldn't be poisoning the frogs with too much ammonia etc. But I do not know if the calcium levels are good enough hence the calciumize. I think this product is safe because what exo-terra is advertising is that it will neutralize water just like the repti-safe but ALSO adds calcium :). Hopefully that explains what I'm doing more thoroughly.
I will look into some of the supplements for dusting that way I know they are getting what they need. Thanks for your feedback--
