  1. My experience has been the same as @Hisserdude's, although I never tried grabbing them by the legs like @whowadat mentioned.

    help with some darkling ID?

    @Hisserdude has before. You can read about some general Eleodes care with a tad of specialized information for E.armata towards the end right here.

    New Roach Owner!

    Welcome to the forum! For the gravid hisser, just make sure you're providing adequate heat (low to mid 80s is probably best), hides, and a fair amount of fruit and leave the rest up to her. I wouldn't personally be worried about the fact that she hasn't given birth yet. I haven't kept hissers in a while (so I don't exactly remember the length of their gestation period down to a tee), but the time she's taken so far doesn't sound abnormal.

    Roaches Rule! Crickets Are A Gateway Bug!

    Welcome! 🙂 Very interesting; it'd certainly be neat to get a cockroach act out there!

    Legs and Leaf Hats

    I could have worded that slightly better now that I think about it, but yes, that is exactly what I meant. 🙂 When I was more or less "starting up", I didn't really have the appropriate resources (in this case, feeders) on hand for keeping many predatory arthropods at all. I have since built up a large collection of isopods and decent colonies of a couple feeder roach species, which have made keeping predators much more realistic.

    Legs and Leaf Hats

    I wouldn't say that my interest in them has really spiked that much of recent, but my feeder roach/isopod availability has. 😛

    Phorid flies, peruvian and fusca bins??

    I had not thought they would. If you've observed them going after average foods, I guess they would though. Sorry I can't offer any other advice.

    Phorid flies, peruvian and fusca bins??

    No problem! I was saying that if you put out a dead roach, monitor it, and see if the flies mess with it, that should tell you which type of Phorid they are.

    Platyarthrus hoffmannseggi Care?

    Mine do well in an 18 qt. container with good ventilation. Things are basically bone dry except for one corner of the enclosure that I keep a moist clump of sphagnum moss in. Besides that, they have a couple, large pieces of bark for hiding under. Their diet consists of dog food and carrot.

    Feel lucky that the Easter Bunny was the only mutated animal that visited your house earlier today. Happy Easter! Photo art courtesy of Noah Campos.

    Never heard that one before. LOL

    Phorid flies, peruvian and fusca bins??

    If you could leave out a freshly-perished individual in a location where it is easily observed and see if the flies mess with it, that should make the lifestyle of your Phorid Flies clear as day I'm thinking. I would assume that the roaches are simply dying from old age though.

    Platyarthrus hoffmannseggi Care?

    Indeed! Based on how few species require it, I would have never suspected that facet of their husbandry myself. lol Glad someone else did, though! For the rest, what @Cariblatta lutea said. lol

    Platyarthrus hoffmannseggi Care?

    As @Arthroverts mentioned, me and @Cariblatta lutea are both keeping this species. I'm just starting out with mine, but from what Alan (C. lutea) tells me, the need for rotten wood is the only really unique part of their care from most other isopods in the hobby. He has been successfully culturing his for over a year now I believe.

    What do you keep your gyna species in?

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

    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. 😂
