    Gromphadorhina oblongonota

    Those look like a mix of Gromphadorhina portentosa and one of the "princisia," I don't see any G. oblongonota features. I think you can only destroy a pure stock by mixing other things in but usually people who have these hybrids bought them as something else.

    Are sweetgum and magnolia pods safe for roaches?

    What's the point of them, decoration?

    Rhino roach died, please help

    I know you can feed roaches certain things that kill them. Try feeding slightly spoiled coconut to hissers. I remember feeding algae wafer fish food to some isopods that killed huge numbers. Certain fish pellets seem to make millipedes grow better and then they die while molting. These cases are rare and I usually would blame it on the food last, but I'll guess it was the fish flakes.

    Keeping Panesthia...

    I know sometimes when colonies are doing good for a long time you can forget to give them the same level of care and they fade away.

    thoughts on lack of roach "merch"

    American Cockroach Society Wear I'm surprised this still works, it hasn't been updated in nine years.

    help! Is hisser molting or pregnant?

    Successful molts take minutes, not hour or days.

    Are lotus pods safe for roaches?

    Lotus pods will be fine unless they have pesticide on them.

    Thank you for accepting me into the forum.

    I asked because they seem to have a larger and wider appetite than those species and could possibly work better for your purposes.

    Thank you for accepting me into the forum.

    Nice to have you! Did you try Gromphadorhina portentosa?

    Darkling Beetle Photo Thread

    Some Eleodes larvae eat other Eleodes so you may just end up with one species.

    New to the forum

    Welcome! What about the giant green banana roach?
  14. To clarify, the latest I-M issue has a pic of a beetle trying to mate with the author's finger. I do not believe any hyrids were created.
  15. It would be neat to see what a cross looked like, but attempted mating does not mean fertilization.

    Gyna centurio questions!

    The males are very small compared to females and mature faster, so if the little ones are males they might all mature at the same time.

    Gyna centurio questions!

    You can check the gender on older nymphs with the segments, but if these are pretty small it may not be obvious. Do they all look like males or all females? The female nymphs grow a lot larger than the male nymphs due to the difference in the adult size.

    Clean up crew questions

    Just make sure you don't use buffalo or dermestid beetles, they eat the roaches in quantity when their populations explode.

    Rhino roach cannibalism ?

    Adults will eat very tiny babies under some conditions but a big one getting eaten is unheard of.

    Beetle lover turned roach fan!

    Welcome! I'd suggest G. oblongonota, G. "princisia big" and Macropanesthia. I think I have flexivitta still listed on my last list. I originally got into roaches because you could find them for sale a long time ago (it could take you a decade to find ten different species) but nobody bred beetles and you certainly couldn't find them at a pet shop.

    New to roach keeping!

    Welcome oblongonotaFan32! I still mostly prefer the flashy stuff.
  22. N. cinerea has been known as the lobster roach since at least the 1980s, flexivitta is named after it because it looks similar but bigger.

    Any hope for the deregulation of millipedes?

    Trigoniulus corallinus and Anadenobolus monilicornis were established by agriculture. Those are tiny, unimpressive species that were never kept or heard of before they plagued Florida after introduction with ornamental plants. There are NO species introduced by the hobby. Millipedes were not regulated prior to 2006 and were still being imported legally.
  24. What kind of info are you looking for? If you're looking for something that adds to your background knowledge of roaches it's great. It contains a lot of interesting facts about cockroaches but it is a discussion of biology tidbits (not husbandry related) often about species you may never see.

    Hi from NC...

    A fine welcome to keepers of the greatest pets Justin! You can use monkey chow, any dog or cat food, fish pellets, etc. Anyone who tells you differently may be trying to sell you something or trying to sell something for someone else. I like Beneful for puppies.
