  7. Hello Everybody, I went to the NARBC reptile show today I was looking to add some more Dubia to my colony so I went just looking for them and I did bought 100 for $20.00 then I saw some Lg Madagascar Hissers so I bpught 3 then they told me they had Tiger nyphs so I bought 3, That is 2 off my list that I want to p/u for display then he told me he had question mark nyphs for $3.00 each so I got his card and I am going to get after the first of next month. When I arrived home I started to get everything set up and put away I opened the Dubias and started to put them away and saw that I had 1 adult male 4 - 1/2 to 3/4 inch nyphs and the rest were 1/4 to 3/8 inch I was bumed that their was so many so small. When I bought the 50 mixed off of Roachman26 was a good mix adults to small I guess it is my fault for not checking better. But hay they will grow! Curtis

    Green Algae

    I was over at a freinds house today and we were out back talking and I looked over at his Koi pond at his waterfall and their was all kinds of green algae growing on it I asked how often he cleaned the algae off and he said every week or so. I was wondering if I let it dry if I could feed it to my Dubia colony. Has anyone used algae to feed their colony befor? I know fish eat it. Curtis

    Orange Juice question

    I don,t know where you live but here in Calif I can put a quarter of and Orande into my colony and it will last about 48 hrs with no mold and the size of my colony it is 95 to 100% gone within that time I check them 2 times a day they are in the garage right next to the dog food that I feed my dog and they are in a clear tub and I can see the food and fruit and vegges without opening the lid.

    What do I feed my Blaptica dubia roaches.

    Roahman26 The colony is doing good moved them up to a 105 quart tub and I do have some new ones and I saw the male breeding with a female. I think I will pick up some more at the show. If you can come down to this show I would it's a really good show their are a lot of venders from out of state that come you don't see at any other show in Californa. Example Bob Clark Cathy Love Mid West Tongs ect all have been at this show. Why do you say not to mix the fish food in with the other food? Curtis

    What do I feed my Blaptica dubia roaches.

    I know it's been awhile since anybody has made a reply to this post but I have just started my colony about 3 weeks ago I did do some research befor I set them up. I did my research befor I pick up any Dubia Roaches everthing I read said dog food as I have 3 dogs I have plenty of dog food I pick up my Dubias at a Reptil show. I have been going to Reptile shows for years but the person putting this one on was trying something diffrent he did Reptiles in one building fish and birds in another and dogs and cats in the last building as I went thru the Reptile building Zoo Med was giving out their promo bags with hand cleaner Calcium and baby turtle food pellets.As their was three of us that went we had three bags with thid in them well my son has no reptils at home and my freind has snakes so I recived what was in his bag went to me as well. As we went thru the show we found 10 more bags that people threw away I ended up with 13 sets of samples. We went thru the bird and fish building and that was o.k. then went into the dog and cat building their was not much of cat supplies but I picked up some diffrent high end dog food that they were giving put samples of the sample size was about a cup and half per sample. So when I got home I read all the ingredients it was all natural madw with diffrent meats fish, chicken, deer, ect Grains rice, wheat, bran ect (no corn) after my girlfreind went upstairs to take a nap I brock out the blender and went to work I blended the dog food and turtle food together and made me 1 gal of roach food. I also give them freash veggies and fruit. They always have the dog food mix 24/7 and I mix up the fruite and veggies. I am going to pick up some fish flakes soon to mix with the dog food and also starting water crystals soon.
