    The Roaches I keep are.
    Blaptica Dubia, Gromphadorhina Portentosa, Byrsotria Fumigata, Polyphaga Aegyptiaca, Blaberus Parabolicus
  1. the substrate is around 3-4 inches deep. i keep the soil very dry, mostly due to the fact i i like in England, so i keep them in a cupboard at room temperature along with a heat mat, so its probably around 35 degrees(Just a guess) and i feed them a small amount of carrot, but they mostly eat dry leaves and the substrate itself, which is full of plant fibre.
  2. my Egyptian desert roaches are breeding i think, they seem to be dropping a few oothes on the floor. is this normal? is this how they give birth? or are these abortions? how exactly small are the new born nymphs? will i know when they've hatched? its a rather large tank. please help!
  3. Mine were from roach crossing, which is luck seeing as i'm in the Uk. do you know much about them? life span? time it takes from the smallest nymph to adult? gestation period?
  4. will do net time, apologies
  5. Polyphaga aegyptiaca Byrsotria fumigata lucihometica verrucosa Gyna cappucina
