Species - Protein / Fat / Ratio

My 8 week old beardie won't touch crickets, he will eat maybe 10 size 1 locuts in one go. But he goes nuts (arm waves, Head bobs, runs about like a loon, etc) for small dubia roaches.
Green wise, i feed mine spring greens, rocket & butternut squash daily and every couple of days i throw in something extra like carrot, bell pepper, cress etc etc.
His greens bowl is normally pretty much emptied in about 20 mins and then about 1 hour later he gets his first lot of roaches.
The link scotty posted is a brilliant source of information food wise.
