Justin Posted August 30, 2019 Share Posted August 30, 2019 Hey guys, my name is Justin. I have thought about owning hissers for some time now since getting away from reptiles but just recently made the jump. I am really enjoying keeping them so far but I do have a question for the community... I have 3 adult G. oblongonota and will be getting 2 E. Javanica in the next day or so. These guys will be pets only, not feeders. I have no problem with understanding and providing a good diet as far as fresh fruits and vegetables are concerned. On the other hand, there is a lot of confusing (not necessarily wrong) information out there for a beginner like myself as far as protein sources and percentages are concerned. First I was investigating high quality dog foods and fish flakes but that seems frowned upon by some for containing too high of a percentage of protein. Now I am looking at the roach chow from Josh's Frogs, which sits at about 15% protein. The cost of this food is not an issue if it would be a healthier option. Is the high protein/additives a problem for pet roaches health in general, or only for those that will be used as feeders? I'm kind of confused here and any advice would be greatly appreciated! I'm just trying to give these guys the best diet and longest life possible. Thank you in advance. -Justin 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
