    Bantua sp. "Namibia"

    At least five babies were born a few days ago, (the 10th to be exact), apparently smaller brood sizes of half a dozen are normal for the females' first litters, their subsequent litters are normally in the 10-15 range, (this based off data collected from four other breeders of this species). Fingers crossed more litters are on their way! šŸ¤žšŸ˜

    Hisser adults can live for two to three years, but the longest lived ones are individuals that are not breeding and have plenty of space. Overcrowded, breeding adults are lucky to live half as long.

    Happy New Year!

    True, but I think in terms of species that have seen long term success in captivity, we're catching up. Yeah there's certainly good people in both those hobbies, it's just hard to find them at times among the throngs of greedy vendors, stubborn groupies and jerks that "popularity" of a hobby and it's more prominent members can bring with it... šŸ˜…

    Bantua sp. "Namibia"

    The offspring from that first, small litter have started maturing, took them only about 3 months and a week... Here's one of the new adult females:

    Happy New Year!

    Yeah, I don't know quite how it exploded in the way that it did, but boy did that community become greedy and toxic fast, (like the T hobby). More good blatticulturists would always be nice, if we could get the hobby as big here as it is in Europe, that'd be fine by me... Anyways, something tells me 2020 is gonna be a good year for the hobby in terms of new additions! šŸ˜‰

    Happy New Year!

    I retract my belated Happy New Year's wishes for you... šŸ˜‚ Species, yes, people, meeeeh... A couple more keepers here and there wouldn't hurt, don't love what happened to the isopod community when it's members started numbering in the several hundreds... now thousands...

    Darkling Beetle Photo Thread

    Yeah that's a possibility too, all depends on what species you have basically... šŸ˜…

    Happy New Year!

    A bit late, but Happy New Year to you all as well!

    Darkling Beetle Photo Thread

    Yeah I've done that a couple times, kinda annoying but thankfully not a huge problem, especially since Eleodes found in the same ranges as each other generally can't hybridize... šŸ˜… Just gonna have a big batch of mystery larvae until they start maturing... šŸ˜‚ Basically sounds like my typical Eleodes setups, they really aren't that demanding, some species like more or less sand in their substrate than others, but other than that pretty easy. Got any pics of yours? If you haven't gotten an ID already I can try and help! šŸ˜

    green banana roaches

    Nah, day/night cycles really don't seem to be a necessity for most roaches, possible exceptions include Polyzosteria, Megazosteria, and other genera in the Polyzosteriinae subfamily... But that's about it.

    Virgin Red runner observation.

    Yeah in my experience roaches certainly live longer when they aren't breeding, both males and females...

    What would you find?

    Pilema sp. females and nymphs in their burrows, hands down, my most wanted invertebrate... šŸ˜
  13. Hisserdude

    What would you find?

    In terms of species that I could find under things, I'd have to say either "Quadrihormetica" onorei, Melyroidea magnifica, or some Zuluia...

    Iā€™m back

    Yeah pretty much my mentality TBH, and right now Blattodea seem to be pretty low on their list of priorities, (thanks isopod hobby! šŸ˜). Nice, that's awesome, roaches really do make great feeders for a wide array of animals! šŸ˜„ Photos either need to be really small to upload here directly, or posted somewhere else online, where you can copy the photo URL and paste it here...

    Iā€™m back

    Well to be fair it's been technically illegal to keep the majority of exotic roaches in the hobby since before @Matttoadman entered the hobby, so it's not necessarily a new development, just more people know about it now... I saw SpaceX and was like "wait a minute... šŸ¤”"... šŸ˜‚
