Just started 3 colonies of Isopods,orange,tan & Florida Brown
It will take 2-3 months for them to produce enough for a constant supply but I can wait!! I now have crickets,mealworms,superworms,dubia,red runners,hornworms,silkworms,blue bottle flies,Isopods and Phoenix worms!!! If that's not a good enough variety of feeders then I am just done.... Naw I find some more in time :<)

Those look to be the cardboard egg crate that the isopods were packed with.

Use oranges to water your roaches. Just give them a new slice or two everyday.

I keep oranges,apples and a variety of fruits and veggies for my roaches at all times as well as a dry mix with many of the ingredients that sandracham has posted. I also use plain water crystals from Lowes or Home Depot without any fertilizer etc. it is cheep and works fantastic as a back up!!! ALL of my feeders are breeding like nothing I ever imagined !!! For the roaches I suggest a combination of water crystals, dry mix and fresh fruits and veggies!!!! My Dubia colonies (2) have gained 4 times the weight from when they started!!! They are so full that I will need to take the two colonies and split them into 4-6 colonies.
Feel free to pm me and if you want I will give you my cell if I can help!!!!

Hey, nice! 3 cultures of isopods. I have got just a starter set from my friend who gave me various insects (Indian walking sticks too :)).
We call them Woodlice over here.
You have even more variety than I do though - I only have one type of fruit fly :rolleyes::cool::D
How many chameleons do you keep?
