  1. Thought this pic was pretty funny, he couldn't get up. Looks like your little nymph is eating just fine! Anything like sliced banana, greens, apple, rolled oats, cornmeal, cereal, dog/cat food, fish food, will be jes fine.
  2. Nice set-up! I like the microscope too---very cool.
  3. yay.
  4. Is newspaper ok to use as a substrate? I use that and cardboard stacked vertically. I also mist twice a week and love to watch them all come out and drink. They also have water crystals.

  6. I keep one male per 10 females.
  7. Well, hey, I'm back. I did eventually get rid of my entire lobster roach colony----gave them to a friend. I was too paranoid that they would infest my apartment! They are prolific breeders!!!! Fast and can climb very well, as you all prolly know. I switched to blaptic dubia and got a couple of hissers. I love both of these species and have enjoyed raising them tremendously. !!! Looking forward to more activity with this roachy forum.
  8. Nice shots! I think blaptica dubia are amazing looking----some of the females are colored beautifully. I'm SUCH a bug nerd.
  9. Oh NO....these are a mutant strain of dubia in reaction to evolution of captivity. They could be very very dangerous. very strange. it does look like a deformed male to me, though.
  10. I keep my hissers in an aquarium in my living room, too. The are in the space of my 'entertainment center' precisely where the TV should be. ha HA I love them. Hissers are nocturnal and this can make it seem like they never eat--------especially if you have a small amount of them.
  11. interesting exhibit. would like to see her work on display.
  12. I don't think I'd paint it because you'd need a water based paint that's not so toxic---acrylic---BUT acrylic won't stick to glass. Catch 22.
  13. Very cool. Good luck with your soon to arrive babies! I have lobster roaches and feed them dry dog food---oats----bread---- They seem to really enjoy small slices of banana----cut in half and and then take half of that and slice down the middle---when I do that the roaches climb all over the exposed fruit and chow down. They also really dig blackberries.
  14. I am currently keeping lobsters and I really like them---so does my beardie and turtles. They are EASY to keep. Don't smell. Easy to keep from climbing. Breed VERY quickly and have live birth. High meat ratio
  15. I check my roach bins eveyday to see if they need more food or if I need to take out any old food.
