  1. Well then, I'm not sure what the problem is, perhaps they need more hides? Earlier you mentioned they have some limestone rocks for hides, is that it? These types of isopods seem more territorial than others, and require many hides to avoid crowding, large pieces of bark would be preferred.
  2. Yup, was a subadult nymph, one that was close to molting at that! Thanks, indeed, there's nothing quite like this species in the hobby yet!
  3. More pictures! Female Male
  4. My male matured!
  5. From what I've heard, the general care needs of the Spanish isopods are: A roomy enclosure, that has really good airflow and is kept dry except for one corner/area that is kept very moist. The airflow and moisture setup is KEY, do it wrong and they'll die off rapidly. You should be sure to provide plenty of hides, as well as plenty of decaying leaves for them to feed on.
  6. Yup, Christmas in April lol! And I'll have even cooler stuff coming later this year as well! Yes, sand is too abrasive for them, coconut fiber works much better. Even species found in dunes seem to do better on coco fiber.
  7. I assume they will be soon, once he starts updating his site again. They are stunning as adults, I really can't wait to see them in person! I can see the similarities to Lucihormetica, the markings on the wings and abdomen aren't too different.
  8. I've wanted some for years, very glad I was able to get some, can't wait to see the adult females in person! Thanks, will kept this thread updated!
  9. It would be worth a try, maybe one day I'll get around to experimenting with them, or wait until somebody else does lol! Indeed, they are beautiful just the way they are, without the glow!
  10. Thanks, and will do!
  11. Got a group of nymphs from Roachcrossing, hopefully they'll do well for me, from what I understand they have somewhat specific humidity requirments...
  12. Got some nymphs from Roachcrossing recently, can't wait until they mature!
  13. Got around twenty individuals from Dell City TX, let's hope they'll do well in my care!
  14. Yeah, would be quite a bit of work, and I don't have rotten logs ANYWHERE near me, I live in a scrubland type area.... You can buy glowing mushroom kits here: https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=glowing+mushroom+kit Don't know if they are edible for the roaches though, or if they would even make their glow spots glow at all...
