  1. Adult Gymnetis have a really cool nutty smell but the larvae are odorless, sounds like spoiled substrate or something else in the cage.
  2. I'm wrapping up an article on these for I-M. Anyone have any interesting info on them I might not know? For those who aren't familiar, this is one of the big Spanish species that is becoming common in the hobby. Of course the coloration is the primary attraction.
  3. I've always thought my colony with multiple males and females was peaceful.
  4. They are D.tityus which is easy to see by the horn structure of the male. If you're not setting up substrate the larvae will eat the female probably won't lay eggs. You'd have to find a local tree-hole habitat to put them in if she did.
  5. It is true many other countries have many more spectacular animals available due to less intrusive government. However, I think it has been a long time since it was true that those hobbies were more vigorous in terms of participation. I originally put up the E & A websites because there was nothing of any use in the late 1990's on the web for invert enthusiasts. One day I'll let the site fall off the web when I'm tired of paying for it as there's plenty of interest on the boards and all the facebook groups are free to host and there are plenty.
  6. I had a colony with more than 60% showing this trait after a number of years. I figured I'd have shortly isolated it but poor luck or management resulted in probable complete collapse.
  7. I feel like somebody is messing with me
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. They will eat the isopods after a few days or so unless the assassubs aren't eating due to molting or previous feeding.
  14. You should get a male tiger hisser then. They look amazing.
  15. I think you could check on them all the time without causing a problem unless you physically harm them by dropping, smashing, etc.
