  1. Hi everyone As many of you know I have been working on my own website about air plants, well now it is open! Home page: http://thetillandsiaforums.com/ gallery: http://thetillandsiaforums.com/gallery/ Forums: http://thetillandsiaforums.com/forums/ Chat: http://thetillandsiaforums.com/chat/ I had to completely redo the gallery, the images broke after being uploaded to my server :/ but I like how this gallery looks better as people can upload photos and comment Everything is working that I have seen; however, if any issues come up, you have ideas, or just want to comment on something contact me in any way. I am open to all suggestions.
  2. Hi everyone Whenever I try to edit my settings I get forwarded to a blank white screen covered by text, random symbols, and code. Any ideas why or how to fix this?
  3. On the beetleforum page anyone can upload and post pictures. Just not to the album. I didn't think about doing a group, that would have been easier for other to upload pictures...
  4. https://www.facebook...181551648650947 Fresh out of the WWW We are open to all suggestions and contributions The cover photo looks kind of blurry so we may be replacing that
  5. I got them the 2.5 gallon, as soon as some mature I will see what they can't climb up. I hot glued the holes and corners of the lid (where they may be able to squeeze through)
  6. I didn't find any I am going to send you a PM about possibly working out something to get the ones you offered earlier.
  7. I was informed by Orin that they do not need a cold period with their experience. So I am just going to keep them indoors and see how they do
  8. I am going to my friends house this weekend, as long as nothing happens. He said his yard is full of maple and oak logs so I can collect some for my beetles while I am at it We can wait until I look around some, incase I find a bunch more.
  9. I am hoping I can find more, tomorrow I am going to find out if I can go to my friends house. I will be going to my aunts house this coming weekend and looking around, but I doubt I will find very many, I looked pretty well the last time. If we did work something out would you be interested in me paying for the shipping + some extra money? I don't have much roach wise to trade with. These are very cool roaches, they are the only roaches I have seen in the wild, or even in person except for those in shows and stores.
  10. Zephyr was thinking P. virginica or P. uhleriana, but like you said we will have to wait until they molt to adults. I really hope I can find more, a colony of three isn't very much
  11. I have a 2.5 gallon glass tank and lid being held for me at a local pet store, most stores want about $20 for a 2.5 gallon but I found some for $12 and the lid is $5-$6. I am hoping to catch some more from my aunts house, and maybe my friends house as he told me there is a lot of rotting logs at his house and thought that he saw some of the roaches.
  12. Its going to be fun keeping the roaches contained Here are some pictures I just shot of them: Their so cute! It took me a couple minutes to get those pictures, they move insanely quickly for little roaches. I am pretty sure they are all nymphs right now
  13. For some reason I cannot keep any animals that require moisture in more closed containers. Mold attacks everything if the air flow is not excellent, I have tried everything to fight it off but nothing works for very long. Maybe there is mold growing outside or something and the spores are spreading? Or maybe mold spores could be coming out of all my houseplants, but they stay dry though.
  14. I moved them back indoors in my room then How do you keep them? I have mine in a plastic container with coconutcoir/fiber substrate, then a couple pieces of wood from the log I found them in to climb on (I think birch). And then their food items, carrot, apple, and assorted dry foods like cat food. I will be getting them a 2.5 gallon tank when we have enough money left over, assuming I can find them for cheaper. The only place I have found 2.5 gallons at was a local pet store and they wanted $18 just for the tank, then I would have to get the lid and everything. Now if I knew that they couldn't climb up tape or something then I could just put them in a critter keeper and call it good But I would rather them be in a glass tank with a tight fitting lid than had really small screen.
