Lose the tape... too many kiddies with get stuck to that.. a good tip in roach breeding " They need to be so close that they cant move 1mm without touching anorther roach" that way they will breed like crasy...

yeah I thought that and it has been removed lol
that tank is 2ft long 1ft wide itl be housing 50 adults and is going to be left alone for a few months until numbers get big, I was thinking of sectioning the tank off so its smaller untill numbers are really big

Naaa just use does eggcreats you have now and remove the toiletpaper tupes.. then place food right outside the eggthingies.. i use carrot they looovve that.. and if you keep them at 29c they breed massively.. but 31c and they will go steril..

turn the egg crates on thier sides that wy all the mesthe make drops to the bottom for eay cleaning. You have plenty of space in there my set up is way smaller and has 50 adults and 98 nymphs (lol was told 100 was sent and i know two have died) so you could probably start with alot more.

Also put a shallow dish in there with water gel. (Cheaper if you buy it in dry packets ie spidershop)

Apart from that it looks good

you were unlucky that yours died B.dubia have a pretty good lifespan, I was originally going to get many more than 50 adults, but i decided I may aswell just get 50 and leave them for a few months before i even think about feeding any to my pets, im sure my sugar gliders will love them
