stimpsonjcat Posted August 11, 2017 Share Posted August 11, 2017 stimp checking in. We have a young bearded and got frustrated with crickets. We have a dubia colony we are trying to get going and are feeding the beardy on small dubias ordered and kept separate for now. 1. Do you currently raise any roaches? Yes 2. If so, how many? Errr...it was a starter kit from Josh's Frogs, 315 total per the ad. 3. Do you culture roaches as pets or feeders? Feeders 4. If feeders, what kinds? Dubia only 5. Are there any specific roach questions that you would like to ask the community? Yes, how do I know I am getting nymphs? I think I found some nymph bodies in the bottom of the container last night when replenishing food and water crystals. 6. How did you find our community? Google I am using a heat pad and a temp controller and use a USB temp tracker in the container to check temp trends, getting 80 at night and 93 or so during the day. They are eating well, and the dross is starting to pile up, but have not seen any obviously gravid females. Kit came with 10 females and 5 males, I lost one female the first week. They are molting in each group as I would expect. I sporadically feed them fruit, but that attracts small gnat/fruit flies. The bearded loves them, and prefers them in side-by-side steps vs crickets. He will not eat green leafy things, we even tried hiding the dubias in his greens. Loves freeze-dried peas though. Any and all advice appreciated. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
