    What do you keep your gyna species in?

    I can provide a +1 for gasket tubs; they're perfect for these.

    Trading hissers for any other roaches

    This would be more appropriate for the "Ad Listings" sub-forum.

    White bloom on males of the tribe Gromphadorhini

    Or maybe it was simply thought of as a desiccation buffer, I forget. Either way, the other theories mentioned here are much more valid. Exactly. LOL People can't even manage to figure out their taxonomy, let alone the even finer nuances of their beings. 😂

    White bloom on males of the tribe Gromphadorhini

    The only speculation I had ever heard is that it may be some sort of a sunblock analogous to what is used by things like Blue Death Feigning Beetles. Knowing that it only appears in mature, sexually-active males might reduce the likelihood that this is true though.

    Hello from Russia!

    Welcome! Awesome to have you here. 🙂
  8. I would say in the vast majority of cases, absolutely not. Really the only species in the hobby that's *thought* to possibly have issues stemming from that is Elliptorhina davidi (since the captive stock originally comes from a single gravid female), which have continued to flounder in captivity years after being introduced to it, but we also might just not understand some aspect of their husbandry. Almost all of the other species stocks in the hobby come from a handful of individuals imported multiple decades ago without any new bloodlines introduced since then, yet they still thrive to this day. As for first hand experience, I have some colonies that have been going self-sustained for nearly half a decade now and I'm not seeing any signs of any sort of weakening.

    What would you find?

    Probably some odd, large Corydiid or Eurycotis pluto. 🙂

    roach colony question

    roach colony question

    Usually they overpopulate, aren't tended to properly (lapses in feeding, watering, or temperature), catch an entomopathogenic fungus, or two species are kept together and one outcompetes the other,
