I'm looking for the biggest non climbing roach other than hissers.
I don't have alot of experience with roaches so I'm just not sure what kind are out there.

Any advice? I'm looking to feed very large T's.

Thanks!

Most of the biggest species are expensive to buy in bulk or painfully slow to breed. That said, my discoids are pretty darn big, affordable, fast breeders, nonclimbing, etc. Basically like dubias but bigger.

Blaberus fusca is the biggest you're going to get. Even then their breeding rate lacks luster compared to that of Eublaberus prosticus, Blaberus discoidalis, and Blaptica dubia.

Blaberus giganteus or Archimandrita tesselata are very big. The latter weighs more and may be more substanitive for your application.

Dubia get big enough for any T. You can always give it more than one.
Other than that, discoids. Anything else probably reproduces too slow.
