  1. Wow, quite the read. Hey Kyle, if you still read things on here, I can help out with a few species if you need replacements!
  2. No worries, just hoping that they spread through the hobby some more!
  3. Please, please make these available for purchase if you have extras! They're so seldom offered!
  4. Hrmmm, what is the humidity in your enclosure? I wonder if it might be a fungal thing entering into their feet?
  5. It was a pain to do, but I have had an Exo-Terra cage that fits your description for the last 7ish years. It took siliconing the top shut and a few other small cracks, but it's been escape-proof for some time now.
  6. White legs is not normal in my experiences. You'll usually only find the white when a roach has freshly molted or has molted and then been injured and is still healing, while the rest of the body has returned to normal coloration. I think if it's just the legs and undersides that are white, the heat rock was probably cooking them. Hopefully things clear up without the heat rock in the tank.
  7. Ah yes, protein. I hadn't though of that since I regularly add some. I use dog food in mine once a week, they love the stuff. Always a feeding frenzy!
  8. By disappeared... do you mean dead? They do like to burrow into the substrate... Can you post some pictures? Also, temperate could be something to consider. And they don't need to be kept too wet, otherwise fungi can take over.
  9. Hip hip hooray!! That is an incredible setup going on there. I'm envious of the collection, except perhaps the time and maintenance that must be needed to keep it going... He's a true invert lover.
  10. I was thinking more along the line of what it resembles... The scale roach
  11. Good to know! I have an invertebrate itch to scratch and he's the only one with the right stock! Thanks for the updates!
  12. To further ID the roach... where did you find it? (Country, region, etc.)
  13. Laxta tillyardi Luribltta trivittata Eucorydia aenea dasytoides Prosoplecta sp. Polyzosteria mitchelli
  14. Welcome fellow Californian!
  15. I have my suspicions, but I need a couple more eyes on this, hopefully the pictures are enough. I know that the last segment shape is the main identifying feature from what I gathered on the web. I'm between laevis and dialatus. Also, if you could jot down your reasoning it would greatly help me on future collection runs. Thank you! Pic 1 Pic 2 Pic 3
