    ICSC May Meeting

    Hello all, the May Meeting will be the 16th, from 10:00-11:30 AM, most likely on Skype. Still looking at keeping meetings virtual due to covid-19. While this does have disadvantages and I'd much rather meet in person, it does allow us some flexibility in terms of speakers. Stay tuned for more info on that. Looking forward to seeing all who can make it! Thanks, Arthroverts

    Hi there from indiana

    Welcome to the forums, may you find all that you seek on here! Trading is perfectly fine, though you should advertise in the Classifieds sub-forum. Thanks, Arthroverts

    Legs and Leaf Hats

    Ah, I am beginning to understand. The interest has always been there, but the ability has not. Thanks, Arthroverts

    Legs and Leaf Hats

    Huh. Seems to me you have gotten more scorpions as of late. You trying to tell me something? Do fellow bloggers get a discount 😜? Thanks, Arthroverts

    Legs and Leaf Hats

    "Your move towards the arachnid side of the hobby perturbs me Lord AAA..." "Most pleasing, it is, to see you know of the light..." Ha ha, just kidding. You do seem to have developed more of an interest in scorpions however @All About Arthropods as of late; any particular reason why? Thanks, Arthroverts

    Happy Earth Day!

    I'm a lil' late to the show, but Happy Earth Day! May Creation be renewed in these times. Thanks, Arthroverts
  8. That's too bad. These large species are certainly being a pain to get established in captivity. Thanks, Arthroverts

    Room temp roaches.

    Thank you! Hopefully gonna get some more roach photos in soon with the April post. Are you alluding to something else however...? Thanks, Arthroverts

    Room temp roaches.

    Well, shipping prices went up where I am (though I need to check with the actual post office and not just the local private mailing center), and I already have done quite a few trades recently, so I need to conserve what funds I have. Now that you brought it up however, why do you ask? Thanks, Arthroverts

    Importing roaches

    I agree with @Allpet Roaches. Plus, there isn't really a need to run the risk of brown-boxing when you can get pure specimens from Magnificent Exotics or Roach Crossing. Thanks, Arthroverts

    Room temp roaches.

    That is incredible! And to think I'm down to three specimens...do you sell 🤣? Just kidding, I'm running low on invertebrate cash right now with a bunch of other projects going on... Thanks, Arthroverts
  13. Any updates with this @Xenoblatta? Or does anyone know what happened with the project? Thanks, Arthroverts

    If Roaches Used Social Media...

    DefinitelyDeropeltis said: ...soooo don't take Mantid Airways y'all. I made it to Florida, but you know how they say "Roach shall not live by defensive secretions alone?" They must have been kidding, you need them on an airline like Mantid Airways; it is NOT roach-friendly. 5 stars for service, 0 stars for protecting their passengers. Anyway, I'm here! Where all the other Deropeltis who said they were coming? #ruletheworld #deropeltis4life #MantidAirways=Junk
  15. ...What would they say? Hello everyone! I got the idea to start this from a National Geographic Kids magazine, and on Arachnoboards there is already Fangbook for arachnids. So I thought, the roaches have got to have a social media platform too! We can all pretend to be a few roaches (or other insects) chatting on Insectgram. Example: MistaHissa said: Gettin' ready to molt out to adulthood, I'll let ya know when I finish, here I come world! How's it over there @HalliHallowHisser? #molt_to_adult And eventually I'll add a few more creatures. The rest of you can also add roaches and other Insects, and speak what you think they might say. Here are a few rules: Please, let us not have 50 people all doing the same kind of invertebrate, but do them as all different individuals of various species. Just two or three of the same kind for now. Please no profanity or adult talk, remember, your saying what you think the creature your representing would post on social media. Also, don't hijack someone else's critter, there are plenty to go around. Posting pictures is definitely recommended, such as a selfie (Of the critter your representing of course). Follow the temperament of your critters too, no super calm Pachlora sp. 😆. Thats all for now, hope you all like it. Thanks Arthroverts

    Avocado

    Nope, but I have heard of them making excellent millipede food, so... Thanks, Arthroverts

    ICSC April Meeting

    Thank you to all who came for the meeting! I had a great time and am already looking forward to the next one. Many thanks to @Hisserdudefor coming out and discussing the hobby with us! Thanks, Arthroverts

    ICSC April Meeting

    Hello fellow enthusiasts, due to the covid-19 situation (unless otherwise announced), the April Meeting will be carried out online via Skype, from 10:00-11:30 AM, on the 18th (Saturday). I will send out a link to join the meeting shortly. Despite the downside of not being able to do what we usually do at physical meetings, we do have the upside of having guest enthusiasts join us from afar, in this case @Hisserdude, who will be joining us to answer questions and just talk shop; exciting, thanks again Hisserdude! If anyone needs help with anything due to the current situation or with figuring out Skype, don't hesitate to reach out and let me know! I'm happy to be of service wherever I can. Thanks, Arthroverts

    65-gallon Planted Vivarium

    That is impressive! Very cool looking. What else do you keep in there, both plant and invertebrate-wise? Thanks for sharing, Arthroverts

    Platyarthrus hoffmannseggi Care?

    When you are the leader of an invertebrate club, its not hard to find people who will think its funny ;)... Not trying to be rude or anything either by the way, I just found that genuinely hilarious. Put a smile on my face . Thanks, Arthroverts

    Platyarthrus hoffmannseggi Care?

    I hope you don't mind that I might be telling this story for a while ;D... Thanks, Arthroverts

    Platyarthrus hoffmannseggi Care?

    I believe @Cariblatta lutea and @All About Arthropods keep this species, so perhaps they can shed some light on your question? Thanks, Arthroverts

    Howdy everybody !!!

    calcium

    I personally don't use a dedicated calcium source and am having great success with my specimens. While there is the potential for calcium to eventually be exhausted within an enclosure, certain supplemental foods contain calcium and likely offset any disparity. That said, I know many use it "just to be safe", whether through calcium powder, cuttlebone, or as mentioned above chalk, and to that end I don't consider it harmful, just not necessarily necessary, ha ha. Thanks, Arthroverts
