vfox Posted November 16, 2010 Share Posted November 16, 2010 I've seen lots of people say they feed off their males and only leave a few in their roach tanks at any given time but I'm curious as to each individuals reasoning behind it. Are you just doing it because you read of others doing it? Are you trying to control the populations? Are you keeping a certain breeding stock and don't want new males to interfere? Are you worried of overcrowding with the males as some species are aggressive towards one another? Do you even do this? I ask because I never fed off males very often, I actually use nymphs as feeders moreso than adults. I also feel like allowing a certain amount of competition amongst males will allow for the strongest to breed and thus makes better stock. I don't think this applies as much with anything besides feeders though; I wouldn't want to go ahead and feed off glow spot males just because I have some "extra" lol.
