    Isopod Hobby

    I am curious when did the isopod hobby start. For some reason I thought it really began and took off over the past 5 yrs. What were some of the orginal morphs? I assume it all started in the UK?

    Favorite species?

    Aussie Rhino Roaches - nice big heavy roaches with a nice colors. Wide Horn Hissers - absolute huge hisser with great hissing attitude. Pepper Roaches and Giant Caves - both are a tie ...both these species will always hold a special place in my heart. They are just an absolute blast to have as pets.

    Incest in roaches

    I'm sure wild population commit incest. When you crack open a log in Madagascar and there's 10,000 hissers, probably most of them are related?

    Getting Ready For More....

    Tesselata is my favorite of ALL pet roaches, they are cool , charming , and alot of fun. For some reason, they've always kept their $ value so you can always breed them and sell some to help support your roach addiction. Javanica are def. one of the prettiest of hissers, stay small and produce alot of nymphs! Gyna species in general for me have always been touchy and alittle iffy, maybe it's just not my luck with these. They are pretty though!

    lights?

    I use lights on my Wide Horn Hissers tank for about a year now for display only, there always seems to be a dominate trio that is out and about even if the lights are on. Everyone else, nymphs included are hiding. I'm sure this makes the breeding slower but I don't really mind.

    hisser size

    I think its probably the Wide Horn Hissers are the longest and heaviest of all the hisser species, although I've seen and had quiet a few common hissers (portentosa) females push nearly the size of the wide horns. I'd love to get my hands on some vanwaerebeki, but seems there's not any for sale in the years I've been searching.

    Roach feeders

    Careful, you'll ending liking the feeders more than the one feedees.

    tree leaves as food

    I feed my roaches and isopods almost exclusively dead leaves of various species and rotten wood... rare occasion I'll offer fruits and veggies.

    Trying to science. Flat-horns!

    Sorry to resurrect this old thread ... but I was curious if any new imports have came into the USA since 2015. I myself just got a group of them, they are def. interesting , cherry red and flat as a pancake.
