    Arboreal Roaches?

    He isn't on here a ton, so I'll just answer for him. Within the U.S, no epilamprids are that commonly available, but you can find Opisthoplatia orientalis, Epilampra maya, and Rhabdoblatta formosana available at times; some new species may be available soon as well. @Bmaines96 may very well have the last R.formosana colony in the U.S right now and I believe he has all 3 epilamprids I mentioned available right now at very reasonable prices.

    Nauphoeta cinerea as feeders

    They're a very easy species. They bred well for me at a range of temperatures, but heat of course speeds reproduction up. They shouldn't be without moisture for too long, but can take some dryness. A substrate can help with retaining moisture and if at least a corner of the enclosure is kept moist at all times, they should do just fine. The diet you mentioned would work great for them.

    This photo thread won't be nearly as prolific as the one by the same name on the mantidforum since roaches are about 75% of what I keep at the moment, but nonetheless, it should be a fun, little place. Let's begin with my most miniscule and possibly most otherworldly beetle species, your favorite pest, Mezium affine. Mezium affine Adults

    hello from kansas!

    Welcome! The "punctata" have actually been confirmed to indeed not be that species last year by taxonomist Dominic Evangelista, but rather Diploptera cf. minor. With that out of the way, they like good ventilation with a mostly dry enclosure and hot temps. 🙂

    TIME TO SHOW THE WORLD

    There have been ups and downs, but while the blog had been in near total darkness, I've been accumulating species by species, enclosure by enclosure, shelf by shelf. The mini zoo that has been built up is the largest ever to be documented on this blog and it's time to show the world. New blog post!

    AAA's Roachy Horde

    Good morning everyone. 😛 I've decided to start up a photo thread on my cockroach collection in its entirety here after finally learning how to easily share pictures thanks to the one and only, @Hisserdude. I'll go ahead and get things rolling with the current crowning jewel of my collection, my smallish nymph pair of Rhinoceros Roaches, Macropanesthia rhinoceros.

    I can only hope! Maintenance time has already gotten very noticeably less itchy, sneezy, and 200% more enjoyable, so things are definitely looking up. The only other potential problem ones I think I have are Blaberus, but I'm still reluctant to give most of those up (especially the B.colosseus "Peru" I just got a few months ago lol). Oh, I'm certain of it.

    How's it going everyone? 🙂 Long time no post! School has finally swept past me once again for this year and so my focus can now shift back to the roaches (as if it wasn't already somewhat lol). I plan to get the photoshoots going soon so I can get some more pictures slapped up here and build up this thread. However, one development in my collection that there's no need waiting to supply pictures for is that I'm now officially hisserless! 😮 The allergies were just getting too bad for me and I wasn't doing particularly great with the species I had, so I just decided to sell them all off to a trusted breeder ( @Bmaines96). Even though this is technically supposed to be a thread representing my current collection, I say why not share some pictures here of some absolutely gorgeous roaches I may never own again. 🙂 Here it goes: Elliptorhina laevigata Adult male(s) Freshly-molted adult male Adult females Large nymph(s) Gromphadorhina grandidieri Adult male Adult female Larger nymph Small nymphs Individuals attempting to hide Gromphadorhina grandidieri/Elliptorhina laevigata Adult male comparison (G.grandidieri left, E.laevigata right) Adult male comparison (E.laevigata left, G.grandidieri right) Besides these two hisser species, I also had Gromphadorhina oblongonota, but unfortunately didn't manage to get pictures of them before shipping them away. Anyways, I hope you guys enjoyed what I did have to show and be sure to stay tuned for more pictures from my drastically-enlarged collection!

    Greetings from Northern California

    Welcome! It seems many people enter the hobby through feeders; hopefully you can get yours hands on some of the nicer pet species soon.
