One of the nymphs molted to adult. For some reason it's missing right wing :( 

 

 

Edit : another nymph molted. It's also a male and unlike the first one it has perfect wings :)

Had two females and a male molt last night so I should be able to breed this species for another generation!

9 adults matured so far; 5 males and 4 females. There are around 9 nymphs left. I'll probably sending the nymphs to my friend so he can start a colony.

On a side note, I found out that you can sex nymphs by looking at the color of the ventral region of last tergite. Female has a dark band running across it while males lack this band.

Congrats man, sounds like they are doing great for you! :) Thanks for the tip on sexing, pretty sure I have at least one male in my culture, so it looks like mine might bounce back too!

Fingers crossed that you'll be able to breed them!
