Glow Spot roach care

Recommended Posts

I'm going to be acquiring these soon and I was wondering about their care.

Do they need to eat rotten leaves, as I've heard some places? Or is it okay to feed them just like normal roaches?

Are they as easy to take care of as hissers?

Can they be housed with coconut fiber substrate?

Thanks in advance!

Mine seem little interested in leaf mulch like some other roaches. They go through phases, but seem to gobble up apple and fish food pellets. They ate a slice of orange yesterday.

Hissers grow more quickly.

Coconut fiber, yes.

Hi Peter! Great, thanks! So they don't seem to be too different from hissers, other than burrowing. How deep should the substrate be?

they dont have wings we keep ours on mulch,eco earth,moss bedding about 5 inches deep with cork bark scattered around uptop

also keep them on a similar diet to our other roaches carrots,oranges,dried leaves,and our roach chow (grain based) they dont seem to show more interest for any one food we are just careful and take out the carrots and oranges before they mold (also am very curious if they have a fav food)

as for them glowing I hope its true have a bunch of the glow mushrooms set up waiting for them to grow out too feed them

I agree , seems like these guys love dead leaves , rotting wood and some compost .. I put bug burger , fruits , veggies in there but they seem to ignore them for me..... I'll try the cork bark / lots of rotting wood trick as well , thanks MrCrackerpants.
