Got a group of nymphs from Roachcrossing, hopefully they'll do well for me, from what I understand they have somewhat specific humidity requirments...

Ah, the "fuzzy" roach - I've had my eye on these. I'm looking forward to future pics of growth & development!

I had some of these a few years back. Bomb-proof is the word I went from 6 to 100+ in a single generation. They do well with twigs to climb too. 

Mall the best from Bill. :D

That's funny, just found one of my nymphs dead, so I'm actually quite concerned about them ATM. :( What conditions did you give them, I'm particularly interested in the humidity levels?

50% with occasional spraying and fruit or veg on offer permanently. The larger ones in particular like to hang of branches during ecdysis like mantids. Cereal/grain products help too. Hope this helps    

All the best from Bill. :D

Yeah, was on my wish list for quite some time, luckily Kyle had them in stock again for the first time in forever! Wow, that's cool, yeah would love to go visit Ethiopia, along with several other areas in Africa, lots of interesting invertebrates there! :D

Unfortunately I didn't look for inverts while I was there. I was into the birds.
