I couldnt decide between the glowspots or the giant cave roach. I voted for the B. giganteous. I have a colony of both, while the glowspots are prettier, the cave roaches are just so HUGE they're a bit mind boggling!!
Yeah, but everyone seems to have them also, they are kind of like hissers, with their claim to fame being "biggest" and therefor they are very popular(and a little expensive; $3 a piece). I am suprised no one has chose any Eublaberus yet, they seem to be a lot of fun.
currently i only have discoids, and have no experience with other roaches. i purchased them to start a breeding colony so i could stop buying crickets.
while i actually enjoy looking at them, i havent got the courage up to handle them yet. so i plan to start with the nymphs and work my way up.
sadly i dont have any newborn nymphs yet. when my discoids arived they were all immature and i just started getting adults a couple weeks ago. so far i only have 3 adults, so chances are good they are all male or female.
specifically i am feeding fat tailed geckos. the thing about these discoids is the adults are far too large and robust for my geckos to eat, so i will only be able to feed small nymphs.
hopefully soon ill have more of them mature and start getting nymphs.
anyway, after all that, im planning on trading some of my discoids for another species. again, i plan on using this species as a feeder. ill probably want dubias, as the larger roaches do not remind me of the germans that infest my apartment. however i have heard that lateralis is a small non-climbing species wich means i could also feed the adults to my fatties. unfortunately, ive also heard they are real fast, and my fatties are anything but fast, so...
