    check out blaberus.com... just browsing through there answered a ton of my questions, and got me to convert from crickets to roaches.

    i feed off eversize nymph to my adult cresties, everything up to but excluding adults. most i hold back as breeders or occassionaly feed them off to my larger herps.

    you can go with discoids but they are way faster and harder to handle then dubia.

    Not to mention they're scary for someone who hasn't dealt with roaches before! Lol. :wink:

    Sarah, i'm sure you'll get used to yours in no time! i actually stayed away from discoids cause they reminded me alot of the american pest roach.

    i also like the slow nature of dubia and the fact that i don't have to hold the adults to look at their abdomen in order to sex them. you see, nymphs i'm ok at grabbing and holding the adults freak me out a little still.

    Palex, you could also go with Blatta lateralis therse are the smallest nonclimbers out there right now that i know of, but get ready to haul @ss after them. they're pretty quick. Check out blaberus.com... :wink: lots of useful info there.
