for those of you breeding dubia or have in the past. Have any of you used substrate for them?
Never have and never had any problems
I was wondering if it had any benifits the guy from joshsfrogs sets his up with coco fiber
I would imagine coco fiber would hold humidity better but I've never had a problem with humidity.
Yeah same here. Im not haveing any humidty issue.
I don't, and have never, used substrate. No problems.
'Course, a shallow depth of "sort of substrate", made up of frass (which the babies love), develops over time.
Ive always used an inch or so of substrate. I use jungle mix. Not sure if its beneficial or not, but the babies do like to dig through it, and as stated they eat the frass that mixes into it. Most people dont use sub for dubia, just to simplify cleaning and maintenance I suppose. I just figure, they're burrowers, let them burrow if they want
very good point on the burrow aspect.
