View Full Version : Roach questions

I am thinking of getting some roaches and starting a breeding colony for my Nephrurus.

--What species breeds the fastest?

I don't want the huge species,a nd I don't want any that will colonize my house. i finally have a herp room that is not in the house, so I think I can convince my wife now.

--Are there any roaches that have small enough babies, that a hatchling levis levis could eat?

I am also bad at remembering to feed and water my crickets.

--What are the simplest roaches to feed, and what do they eat?

It would be nice to have some that do well on alphalpha pellets or something like that. Just looking for ease and good feeders.

--Are there any species that match my needs?

For Levis? I would go with Lateralis Justin!

For something like Amyae, I use Dubia, since I don't like throwing mass amounts of crickets in...just one nice size roach does great.

Get water crystals for them for water, and I got some roach buffet from blaberus.com that they eat great!
