Do they have any special traits? Or just a pigment change?
I found out from another site that in Germany they have successfully been able to bred a lighter colored dubia roach. Sometimes they may find there way into our stock, but except Germany they are not currently being bred anywhere else. If you have any dubia that are like this I think it would be worth the while to try and start breeding a light colored colony I think they might be be in demand if you dont live in Germany.

I had a few light ones like that. I fed them all off. They were always the somewhat smaller individuals for me. My colony is mostly black adults.
Mine are mostly black, I have 'red' ones with no black that are adults though. They tend to be small, picked on, and they're always slower than the others.
Thats pretty cool. I will have to keep an eye out for these in my colony.
That's cool! But I think I would stay with the normal black dubias.

I managed to find 2 odd colored dubia nymphs for sale and bought them, pretty cool looking right!
god. insects are just way too cool for my own good. i swear, I'm going to become a social pariah by the time i have a collection befitting the level of interest i have. love the texture on the second nymph. looks kind of like old brass
