Best "Pet only" species?

Recommended Posts

Ok guys and gals, here's what I am researching. What species of roaches seldom ever need fed off to keep the population stable? So it would be slow breeding and have a short lifespan. I would like to get a cool species that I don't have rely on using it as a feeder.

Corydidarum pygmaea, Paranauphoeta discoidalis, Polyphaga saussurei, basically most of the rarer species are slow breeders that you'd never really use as feeders.

Lucihormetica verrucosa can be quite prolific BTW, and could probably be used as occasional feeders. L.subcincta and L.grossei don't breed that quickly though, and are good candidates for you.
