    What am I doing wrong?

    Hi everyone, sorry for the late response. Well, I have a couple hissers, a domino, a lobster, an australian, and a harlequin. Had a glowspot, but he escaped somehow. And I'm not really sure about the temp, I'd say it's just normal room temperature. No heating lamps or anything. I only use toilet paper as substrate because I didn't wanna put something like dirt becuase then they'd be invisible 24/7 because they hide a lot, and I want to be able to see them. But I could change the substrate. What should the substrate be? And yes, water dish is always available for them in the middle. They can drink when they see fit.
  2. I've had my roaches for a couple months now, and they still don't seem that much bigger. I don't see them eat, and they aren't very active. Is the substrate wrong? I line the bottom with toilet paper. And I feed them flukers. But they don't seem to be molting. And I never seem them jump for joy when I put food in the cage. I've tried cereal, and today I'm trying noodles. They don't seem excited for any food I give them and they aren't getting bigger.

    Will Flukers Cricket Food Sufice?

    ok thanks, will keep all this in mind.
  4. Hi, i'm new here! I'm new to keeping Roaches, have been keeping mantids for a long time, but to save money, decided to try Roaches this year for the time being. I have about six right now. Domino, Australian, Lobster, 2 Hissing, and Harlequinn. Had a Glowspot but it escaped somehow. Anyways, I have some leftover flukers cricket food. You know, the brown powder stuff. I have a full container of it. I have been sprinkling it in the cage, but can't tell if they're actually eating it or not. SO I ask: Is that a good food choice? Do you think they're eating it? I can't tell, as they're usually hiding under the paper towel substrate I line the bottom of the cage with...they are quite boring right now.
