Advertisement I sometimes feel bad for my dubias. Like @Jason B, I found that I quite like my dubia colony. When feeding, I have to actively focus on the fact that these are feeders, and my animals need to eat. It is a strange bittersweet feeling, being excited that the T pounced on a fresh meal, and sadness for the dying roach. However, I combat this sadness by knowing that I am giving even the dubia colonies the best care that I can. They have good lives...until they don't.
