    Oniscus asellus growth time

    How long time do this species use to become adult? I have many many nymphs now.

    Secure 5gal setup for 2 hissers?

    They like hiding places. Mine are more "calm" when they can hide and they havent tried to escape since then.
  3. What do the habitat for Blaptica dubia look like in the wild?
  4. IceRoach

    Parcos and Porcellio

    Nice! How many cool (all of them are cool) species do you have now?
  5. IceRoach

    My first try on isopods

    I collected some Oniscus asellus from my garden. What do you think of their enclosure?
  6. IceRoach

    Unique color

    Any new update about the roach?

    Hisser advice?

    You could keep them in room temperature with no substrate. But they like moisture. Hiding places is important.

    Clever little devils!

    One of my hissers figured out how to open a slide door with her head plate! Because of that I had to use another terrarium.

    Changing Hissers Diet?

    I tried feeding mine grapes, and they love it!
  10. Is there something other than cat/dogfood or similar food that I can give my roaches. I have started having a mite problem...
  11. I am getting sundews, for they are easy, fast and cheap to grow. The sundews can only eat tiny nymphs, but it doesnt matter if I check the terrarium often for nymphs that they can eat!
  12. I have only two roach species now, so I don't think that will be a problem
  13. I think on using pitcher plants for the larger roaches, and use venus flytraps for the tiny nymphs.
  14. Idea for population control I do not mean to do this for fun, but only for controling my pet roach population. So I am sorry in advance if someone is disgusted by this... When my cockroaches will get many more than the few I have now, I will try an "experiment". Becuase I do not want to have too many, I am gonna feed them to carnivorous plants. I do not see how this is different from feeding cockroaches to scorpions or tarantulas.
