    Welcome Cole! You are a big ant keeper I see, so I have a question for you. Have you kept any ponerine ants? I am interested in possibly keeping some.

    Many thanks, and welcome again!


    Yes I have! I kept Ponera Pennsylvanica for some time, but it didn't last in the end.

    Hymenopus Coronatus

    Blaptica Dubia

    Danaus plexippus

    Exotic Fish:
    Several Saltwater Fish I can't recall the names of
    Betta splendens

    Felis catus

    Super worms:
    Zophobas morio

    Fruit Flies (Feeder):
    D. Hydei

    Lumbricina sp.

    Rana temporaria

    Vespula vulgaris Queen for a little while

    I also have 9 more mantids coming in the mail, and will be ordering 2 jumping spiders and some little Kenyan roaches (12). I also have a colony of Dubias with around 30, no winged adults yet... I probably will be getting some Red Runners in the future. I currently only use my roaches as feeders. I am also a member of arachno boards, tarantulas forum, Formiculture, mantid forum, and beetle forum. I live in upstate NY (Rochester) and am excited to keep roaches! Here is my Dubia setup (they are all hiding, there is also a second hide not visible in pic. Also sorry about the mess in the backround, with so many inverts it gets hard...)
    Also, everyone thinks my name is Cole. Yeah that's my username, but not my actual name. I just like the name Cole, partially because it's the main character from my favorite novel. I also don't like using my real name (Shaheer) on the Internet.
