Crickets are my favorite of the commercially raised feeder insects because of their nutritional value. Superworms i like because they are healthy, big and easy to keep and gutload. I wouldnt do fish or waxworms since the only benefit the basilisk will get from them is the exercise from running to the food bowl. I have an old old female basilisk that i will occasionally give a pinky to to keep her weight up but i have a rule that i dont feed mice unless i have to. Just my opinion that mice are an incomplete diet to an otherwise healthy insectivore so my cbb 8 month olds have never seen a mouse. Your diet sounds great. I dont vary a working diet if my animals have good weight. If you dont mind living with roaches i hear they work, oh, and maggots work great if they eat them and you can find them
