Keith Posted April 4, 2013 Share Posted April 4, 2013 I'm growing plants indoors, and one day my plant light got turned around, the light mimics sunlight so plants can be grown indoors. The light was aimed at my roach tank in one corner. I go over and see a few dubia basking in the light! My room is close to 80 F so its already warm, you would think seeing UVA/UVB rays would make the roaches hide, but no they enjoyed it for about 10 minutes then went away to hide. Even though roaches are nocturnal outside even at night there is still ultraviolet light shining on them. I wonder if they somehow benefit from small doses of "sunlight" each day? Mabye keep the light on away from the tank so it doesn't overheat, but gets a sight amount of light on it, then at night turn it off to replicate day/night cycle.
