    Dying hisser. Is there anything else I can do?

    In the OP she mentions it was a large female nymph, not and adult.

    So sorry to hear that, occasionally individuals in a colony will just die off for no reason at all, just flukes. It's also possible she could have been poisoned by pesticides or bad food, but then that would have likely affected the rest of your hissers as well... Whatever the cause of death was, it looks like you did all that you could, and I'm sorry for your loss, may she rest in peace.

    Invertebrate Dude Caresheets

    Just FYI, I've created a new blog dedicated to caresheets, specifically for invertebrates that I've successfully bred myself. This includes a few of the more obscure invertebrates out there, and of course, plenty of cockroaches! Stay tuned for new caresheets posted periodically! Invertebrate Dude Caresheets
  8. I totally agree, I have no problems with hybrids so long as people label them as such, it's only a problem when people start selling hybrids as pure stock...

    Pseudoglomeris (Corydidarum) magnifica

    They're already here, and doing quite well for several breeders.
  10. It basically comes down to coloration, most "purebred" stocks have pretty consistent and easily recognizable coloration, whereas hybrids are a lot more variable, and most fade to dark brown or black after a few generations. That's why I highly advise against keeping different Gromphadorhina together, as even hybrids of the prettiest species end up looking rather dark after a few generations... But whatever, so long as hybrids are labeled and such and not sold as pure-breds, that's fine by me. Yours are quite pretty, hope they do well for you!
  11. I don't know of any purebred hisser stocks that are black like that, besides possibly the G.grandidieri "Black" stock being bred in the US. Looks like yours are a mix of portentosa and oblogonata based on the overall dark coloration and white spots.
  12. Those are definitely hybrids, no pure MHC stock currently in captivity looks like that male, (unless your pet shop is importing hissers directly from Madagascar).
  13. Periplaneta americana colonies always have a certain, "roachy" smell to them, can be pretty strong in larger colonies.

    Malaysian roach ID

    I realize this is an incredibly old thread, but for the record this looks like true Hemithyrsocera histrio, or something close, definitely that genus though.
