Tips for a newb?


Recommended Posts

I am planning on setting up a roach colony for gecko food. Any suggestions for a good species to try for a 1st time future roach keeper?

My feeding is to tarantulas and chameleons primarily. One of my favorite feeders is the Lobster roach while Orange Heads or Discoids work well for big eaters and in cages where climbing is an issue (they can't climb smooth surfaces). Lobsters climb and burrow and I primarily cup feed them (a small heavy dog bowl with vaseline around the upper edges) for ease and certainty of feeding. I'd suggest trying two of the more common and inexpensive feeders. You can set them up in 1-gallon bucket cages which can be stored anywhere and you can decide which you like best (or decide having a choice and variety is helpful).
