After a few years (from when I first was on this forum) of debating and trying to get started in the hobby, I have managed to find 100 subadult discoid roaches. Now I am setting them up in a bin (45 litres, hinged top). Will they work for food for many insects and lizards? I decided to choose discoids due to the looks and how they can get quite large.

Discoids are known to be pretty good feeders. I've never had them so I'm only taking peoples words for it :/ I hope you like them!

They are good feeders, but if you're feeding to lizards just make sure you aren't offering anything too large for the lizard, because they could choke on it.

They're compared to Dubia's in terms of feeders, overall really good. Most things will eat them when offered.
They're very hardy and breed fairly quickly.
