    Where do you get your dubia from?

    Mostly dubiadeli.com but lately i've been ordering from rainbowmealworms.com for the baby leopard gecko sampler. They're a bit more expensive than dubiadeli but it balances out so i don't have to pay 2 shipping fees.

    I got cleaners when I ordered my discoids. So far I like them. Even when they turn to beetles, they remain small and continue to clean. I ordered from Ready Reptile Feeders. Good experience.
