Lightbulb Halmahara Gecko Diet

Hello! I saw an ad on the Geckos board selling a Halmahara feeding on crickets. I know the individual selling it, Keven2/Keven Vogenberger has an... interesting BOI thread currently running about him, but I wanted to get others' findings and experiences before correcting him on the diet here since I am inexperienced with this species.

To my knowledge, Halmaharas are best fed CGD with insects as a treat or supplement to the diet. Is that correct? I found my info from Pangea forums and Gecko Time's care article.

When I worked with these guys, I was told by the person who sold them to me that they don't do well on a cricket-only diet, that daily CGD and weekly crickets was more appropriate. But I'm no expert.

I have been keeping this species for over 10 years and I have done both diets and I could never tell the difference as far as health wise. I have 2 halmahera that are pushing 10 years of age being fed only crickets. I believe it's personal preference. I've literally had over 40 halmaheras that I've bought and sold and 9 that I've kept as personal pets. If they do better on a gecko diet I haven't seen it. Anytime you have animals living 10 years or more I believe its ok to say you are doing something right. I'm sure people have halmahera living 10 plus years on gecko diet also. crickets is easier for me to feed because of the numbers of reptiles I care for. There's nothing wrong in providing which ever diet you prefer. This is just my experience over the years. Someone else may have a totally opposite experience doesn't make them right or wrong.
