    Default What kinda of roach is this?

    I got these from a reptile store. The ones i got before where always smaller. Are they good for gargs and cresteds to?an are they as easy to breed as the smaller dubas?
    Thanks

    Could be Blaberus discoides nymphs. That would be my best guess.

    Did you happen to get a look at the adults? BTW: Adult discoides are winged.

    If this is what they are, then yes; they are as easy to breed. However they are not as prolific.

    I didn't get to see the adults iand I've been looking online but found a few different. Roaches thet look like these do. Trying to find out what kind they are, how long does it take for them to become adults? Cause there huge for just nymphs none have wings yet.

    If they are Discoides, (these are common enough) adults are about the same size as adult hissers, just not as heavy bodied. WAY bigger than adult B. dubia. Males are close to 3" long!

    I forgot how long it takes them to mature, but well fed, kept warm and humid it's not all that long (4-6 months comes to mind for some reason!).

    EDIT: From your pic above, these are half-way there!
