I'm looking to order dubia roaches for my 18" female bearded. What length of roach should I buy and how many would she need a day? (Beardie is 515 ish grams)

How old is she? 18 inches and 515 is a pretty large beardie, and it's important to know the age because of the salad/bug ratio as they get older. She can easily have fullgrown male dubias (the winged ones) or XXL.

I am guessing she is a little over a year, but I'm not sure. She eats her veggies pretty well :)

go with the 1 inch dubias or bigger but 1 inch is a good place to start and go from there, my beardie is 13 inches from head to tail she doesn't have any problems eating the 3/4 inch how many will BD eat every day will vary some days she will eat 10 other days 20
what i do i give her 10 when her bowl is empty i drop another 10 what ever she doesn't eat i give that plus some more the next day but i don't drop those roaches back in the bin again.correction go with the xlarge dubias anything bigger then that will cost more money as they will be fully grown or start your own colony.

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
