  1. An isopod has a head, 7 body segments, and then smaller abdominal segments. I see maybe five segments and a head with no legs or abdomen so there's just not enough there.
  2. I wish all the pictures could be hosted here more than anyone, but the web hosting company charges insane amounts of money for what little storage we currently have. Members currently have to link to other picture hosting sites. This works well except when the post gets old and the links no longer work.
  3. I've fed them all sorts of decaying leaves from trees and bushes, even tulips and elephant plants, and haven't had a problem yet.
  4. I kept them at my normal cooler temps (low 70s) for a year with no losses but no immatures. On advice that they breed when it is warm I moved them to high 70s and after a month they nearly all died.
  5. My experience following advice on the net on the new species has led to some losses and poor to no reproduction, but maybe my idea of dry and warm are entirely different. I finally am getting a bunch of very tiny ones.
  6. They will eat the isopods after a few days or so unless the assassubs aren't eating due to molting or previous feeding.
  7. You should get a male tiger hisser then. They look amazing.
  8. I think you could check on them all the time without causing a problem unless you physically harm them by dropping, smashing, etc.
  9. It is a very big island and they do not fly.
  10. This species never does as well as the smaller ones in the genus which is why it usually costs quite a bit more (still just a few bucks). In my experience small numbers are caused by less than regular care or trading off too many.
  11. If you keep adults below 72F you'll probably never see a nymph but they can grow at cooler temps. Like Blaberus giganteus, some adults die within a day of molting. It is one of the best species! Good luck.

    Please explain the value of this thread.
  13. I've only seen maybe 30 adults and on those the males were always orange and the females gray. On the pictures in this thread the male is the orange one. I'm curious how often the colors don't match genders on Alan's stock.
  14. I thought the orange were the males? (At least on adults I've seen - compare the uropods)
  15. I had a massive colony for a few years and then they died out.
