    Did you notice that she said the heat mat melted some plastic on her bins? I don't think sandwiching a heat mat between two plastic tubs gives the heat mat adequate ventilation.

    I like that her system lets roach poop fall through the floor.

    Did you click on this link for the dubia part? It shows exactly what I do. My 10 gallon is not self-cleaning. In a bathroom that ranges upwards from 68*F year round, I only heat my 10 gallon dubia enclosure overhead with a 15 watt bulb in an 8.5 inch dome. Nymphs are born all the time. If your room is cooler, I'm pretty certain a 25 watt bulb overhead will give the roaches all the heat they need to reproduce.

    My house usually doesnt get lower then 72 degrees but the place where i'm getting the roaches from says they like the temps to be in the 80s to breed prolifically and i'm concerned on how my cats would react to them.

    I only feed my leo dubia once in a while. Mostly I feed her crickets.

    Once you get started, you'll probably have more than enough dubia.

    I mainly want the discoids because being roaches they will more then likely be a bit hardier then crickets usually more crickets die then i actually get to feed iggy.

    What a cool feeder deal! I'm certain Iggy was pleased!

    Spread out the waxworms over several months. Waxworms can make a leo want nothing else.
