I'm seeing lots of adults in the enclosure now so it won't take too long for me to have a large colony going :)

Thanks :) I'm quite surprised at the fact that these are doing well for me since I'm about to lose B. villis. Apparently notulata are hardy

How do you exactly keep them? I've tried to breed them but it failed :/

I keep mine on moist eco earth with ~2 cm of layers of leaves on top, and use Cubaris murina as cleanup crews :)

I feed them fish flakes by the way

thanks a lot! Do you breed them in the cup I can see on the pictures? :)

You are welcome :)

I have them in half gallon glass jar. Will probably move them into a gallon jar once they all mature

Ya. They are glued on leaves that are at the bottom of the enclosure so taking them out would be a hassle.

Yeah, you don't want to stir up a colony of small, fast, climbing roaches, it gets crazy! :lol:

Took some pics few days ago. Most of the nymphs are presub and sub so I should be seeing adults in about a month :)
