Blaberus discoidalis is a large sized feeder species that has been in the roach hobby for as long as it has existed. This species is commonly kept as a feeder and research subject in laboratories and is admired for its hardiness, size, and breeding speed. Nymphs can reach adulthood in as little as 3 months under perfect conditions. Unfortunately, many sources of this species inadvertently offer hybrid stock of it and its close relative, Blaberus boliviensis. This stock is 100%-pure, as determined by microscopic examination of the male genitalia and lineage tracing.
