    AAA's Swarm

    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

    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.

    Surinam roaches

    Are you located in Florida? If not, I have something that breeds just as fast as them available - Pycnoscelus sp. "Thailand".
  18. All About Arthropods

    Which species?

    From what I've seen, it's likely more important to other Corydiids as well and my P.saussurei have basically survived and reproduced solely on it since my leaves seem to have not been at an appropriate level of decay.
  19. All About Arthropods

    Suggest me a species!

    The various Blaberus spp. are a good choice and Eublaberus is also a nice fit. Arizona Sand Roaches should be kept with a dry substrate of coconut fiber with only one or two corners of the enclosure kept moist. They should have high ventilation and should be offered dead leaves and dog/cat food for feeding.
