    I was going to suggest keith but i like his idea it seems like island would be the best way to establish and distribute them into the hobby eventually. P.s. sorry about the pm's and emails regarding these guys

    All of the roaches you listed and most inverts you will probably keep in the future will benifit from good vetilation. A lack of air flow will lead to mold and mildew and all sorts of gross. Not all creatures have the same requirments though so it may take some research or trial and error depending on what you are working with. You don't mean all in the same tub do you?

    Are grape leaves safe for roaches?

    So just for frass and giggles i set up a little side colony of dubia and offered them some grape leaves along with some pond sticks i feed my main colony and they didnt touch the grape leave as far as i could tell. I waited a couple days for them to eat the sticks and then tried again with grape leaves as there only food source with still no intrest. So in short i revived and old post and added no new information.

    Screen is best for most species unless they need a ton of humidity then i might go with drilling holes. You have to drill a lot of holes in order to get enough ventilation.

    Teneral mating, your experiences.

    My E.posticus mate before the females dry out all the time. The males will surround the females and display while they shed then as soon as the wings straighten they chase them around the cage and hook up. I posted a pic of it in breeding and nymph issues if somebody that knows what they are doing wants to link it.

    domino slow growth

    so about two years ago i purchased a couple dozen domino nymphs from kenthebugguy. since it was such a fancy roach i wanted to try as close to a natural setup as i could. i layered some mulch and leaves and all in a bucket setup. i left the roaches to feed off the decaying plant material and watered them when the bucket started to dry all through the first year i wasnt able to keep the temp above the low 70's for the first year then i moved and switched to a tub that i was able to heat better. i started to feed them at this point also (mostly bug burger and bee pollen). today after a little more than two years i had my first nymph molt to a adult. how long does it take everyone elses to mature under normal conditions? i have some ?'s and they seem to mature in only about 6months or so. i know that i slowed there development but two years seems a bit much. domino by monostomatic, on Flickr

  25. I have found freshly molted orange head roaches mating before. I watched three different roaches chasing this newly molted roach around flicking there wings trying to hook up. is it normal for for roaches to breed before they dry out or is my colony just kinda trashy? orangelove by monostomatic, on Flickr
