Newby with some ??

Recommended Posts

I am looking to start a colony of roaches..The crickets are starting to cost too much $.

I will mainly be feeding Crested Geckos/Leo's/and african Fat-Tail Geckos..Babies/Adults..

What would be the best roaches to go with that are non-climbers/Flyers, super prolific, and have babies that are small enough for baby geckos to eat? I was looking at Orange Spotteds and Six spotteds..but the orange spotted nymps look pretty big for a new born gecko to eat and the six spotteds I've heard are hard to keep

Any help and opinions would be great.

Bill, In my colonies the orange headed roaches tend to be a bit more narrow than hissers and discoids. I have a large colony of cresteds and a lot of them are started on orange head nymphs. My leopards and fat tails enjoy them too. I have even seen neonate pictus trying to tackle orange head nyphs but they are just a little too small to tackle them. -Derek
