    Don't have any answers for you, but I am following this thread. I've been considering getting some small roaches for my bearded dragon. If I can breed them, that'd be swell too. I'm so tired of crickets.

    Yeah he gets a fair diversity, but his staple is still crickets. And it just takes one damn cricket to die and escape my eye to foul the whole lot and start a massive die-off. Drives me up the wall. I am a fan of worms in their longevity, but I like my food to move -- I don't want him to get lazy.

    Roaches are supposed to live a very long time compared to crickets, that would be good if they last a good long while and really don't stink. The herp shop wants anywhere from $0.50 to $3 each for hissers at that rate my pets would be eating higher priced meals than me sometimes! lol

    I've been You Tubin it up tonight searching "roach colony" videos, seems the dubias are the #1 feeders but they all seem to be kept about the same. High protein dry cat food or dog biscuits, water crystals and fruits/veggies high temps 90*F+ for breeding activity and vertical cardboard eggcrate for housing. I got my colony box built today, now I'm waiting on my eggcrates and water crystals and of course, the box full of nightmares!

    If you need water crystals for roaches, crickets, etc get the dry crystals and add your own water, way cheaper don't buy a teaspoon of crystals and quart of water from petsmart for $10 buy a 2 lb bag of dry crystals and have enough for god knows how long: http://www.watersorb.com/prices.htm

    Thanks for the heads up, swords! I normally give my crickets some veggies, and that keeps 'em pretty good in terms of water. I don't think I'll invest in roaches until after I figure out my living situation for the next year (or even the summer) first.

    you are planning on sprinkling them with some vitamin powder before u feed them do you?
    I know that this wasn't a question for me, but on a related note: My beardie LOVES both the calcium powder and multivitamin power. If I'd let him, he'd eat it straight out of the container (don't worry, I don't/wont).
