Using food to change the color of my hissers?

Recommended Posts

I have ten nymphs that were pretty colorful when I bought them but they have darkened to almost solid black. I read somewhere that different foods can impact their colors as nymphs. What is a good staple diet that would produce colorful hissers? I use mainly carrots, apples, oranges, and fish food as their current staple diet.

The fish food could be darkening their color, but full black hissers are pretty rare as some gene mutations make them ebony. Hissers seem to have somewhat of a random genetic lineup from what I understand, especially if they’re mixed.

Experiment with different fruits and veggies and dry puppy food, see what you get. My roaches love oranges, carrots, pineapple, and strawberries.
