    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.

    Happy New Year! I can feel the new species dropping already. 😋

    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,

    Return of Roach Crossing?

    I'll keep my fingers crossed!

    green banana roaches

    Sure thing.

    green banana roaches

    Nope. 🙂 I don't know of any roaches that are being bred in captivity at the moment that actually need a day and night cycle.

    Return of Roach Crossing?

    We can hope! He seems to be honing in on his business much more recently and has been responding to people's emails in a timely matter for the last couple weeks. In fact, I was in contact with him just today.

    Can these species live together?

    Sure thing! I don't, but @Bmaines96 might be able to hook you up with both of those. 🙂

    Can these species live together?

    Sorry, that part of your previous response went completely over my head. lol It shouldn't matter; only thing is that the moist side will dry out faster with the heat mat, so just make sure it never gets too dry. 🙂

    Can these species live together?

    I would likely choose one of the small silver varieties, like this one here. But it doesn't matter all that much; many species should do. Some small silver springtails got into a bunch of my cultures somehow through materials I collected from outside (even though I sterilize everything) and they seem to be doing a good job, so that's really the only reason why I'd recommend them. lol I'm not sure if they're the exact same species I linked to.
