 Beginner feeders

I was hoping it could only take a small amount of space. I want a feeder insect that can be fed as a stable diet for my leopard gecko. And crickets are too fast for my gecko to eat. i want a slow moving, stable diet, small space food.

There is the roach Blaptica dubia. As adults they are too large for leos but as nymphs they would be perfect. They really don’t move all that fast and they can’t climb or fly. Once you get a colony going you will have a nice supply. Since you would just be feeding off the nymph’s you will always have the supply going. You just have to wait for the colony get set and breeding regularly before you feed heavily from it. And you can have nymphs from all sizes. I breed these myself and my Beardies love them, from hatchling to adult.

Hope this helps

I’ve got a colony of Discoid roaches and the small ones are great for leopard geckos. Just put them in a dish that’s slick enough that they can’t crawl out and you’re set :)
