Keith Posted March 14, 2013 Share Posted March 14, 2013 A year in the making and finally my effort has paid off! My goal was to breed a light male and female dubia together, to see if the offspring inherit the color gentically, or if diet/environment cause the odd coloring. All my dubia are siblings, raised in the same tank, with the same diet. I gave them the best care possible to rule out neglect causing odd coloring or poor diet. Based on my results thus far, I have gotten light adults, so coloring is part genetic! I also discovered that based of this breeding i have gotten extra large adults when last year breeding normal adults the result was mostly normal dubia. I also noticed many of the males has wrinkly looking wings even though they shed fine, and the wings have a grayish film over them which also makes the wings softer than normal. This occured in at least half of the males, though it has no ill effect on the roach luckily. So lets start with the Parents, these are what started it all.
