    Got Madagascar Hissers again because I think they are cool, and a bunch of B. dubia. What other species do you all raise as food for your geckos?

    I currently keep B.dubia, switched them to a solid color tub to hopefully help them breed better. I would like to try a red runner colony at some point.

    I am going to try tubs. Why do you think they breed better in a solid tub?

    It's darker in a solid colored tub, I noticed that they would scatter more and stay inactive when I had them in a clear tub, I also do not have a closet or room that I could keep them in so they are on the rack with my geckos in the dining room.

    I have dubia as well, mine are in clear tubs but I keep them underneath a table so they stay out of the light. I have considered going ahead and breeding superworms (Zophobas morio) since my Leos like them so much. Haven't started it yet though.

    I've got a meal worm colony going and just got the green light from the wife to order some dubia! Have been keeping crickets also.
