Will Flukers Cricket Food Sufice?

6 posts in this topic

Hi, i'm new here! I'm new to keeping Roaches, have been keeping mantids for a long time, but to save money, decided to try Roaches this year for the time being. I have about six right now. Domino, Australian, Lobster, 2 Hissing, and Harlequinn. Had a Glowspot but it escaped somehow. Anyways, I have some leftover flukers cricket food. You know, the brown powder stuff. I have a full container of it. I have been sprinkling it in the cage, but can't tell if they're actually eating it or not. SO I ask: Is that a good food choice? Do you think they're eating it? I can't tell, as they're usually hiding under the paper towel substrate I line the bottom of the cage with...they are quite boring right now.

Yes roaches eat cricket gut load. They seem to like the bearded dragon dry diet, oranges, and cricket gut load. That's my experience with my dubias though

I've never had any luck with getting my hissers to eat a powdery food. That might just be mine though. I feed mine uncrushed cat food.

That's what I feed my hissers, in addition to various fruits and air popped popcorn. They go crazy over a ripe banana but tend to always gravitate towards the dish with the Flukers in it after a little while.

When I had crickets, a pet shop boy said tropical fish flakes had all the nutrients they needed. So I tried it with the Discoid roaches I had just after, along with ground cat food and the powder your using and they did very well. Still use the fish flakes for the German I have now. You might now that Flukers also has a water gell. Safer than a water dish and easier than keeping a cotton ball wet. Domino are cool-looking. Harlequin are beautiful. Have fun!
