A slow start

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

My name is Skip and I'm from central Alabama. I got into roaches about a year ago as feeders (for tarantulas, frogs, geckos, and salamanders) and since then I've become more and more infatuated with them.

I started out with lateralis as feeders (the colony is huge now) and then I picked up some dubia as pets about 6-8 months ago. I also have arrangements right now to pick up some domino and question mark roaches in the next couple of weeks.

The more I look at different roach species, the more I start shuffling my herp and invert room to arrange for more bins. I hope to also pick up some death's heads before long as they were one of the first species that attracted my attention to pet roaches.

I look forward to lurking more and contributing when able.

Hi, welcome to the forums! Domino and question marks seem to be getting really popular lately! I hope you enjoy the forum as much as I do!

Roaches should be a huge thing with all kinds of people. I have changed views on many people around here. I love em all! Call me crazy but I'm getting into more pest species than the exotics. My favorite species right now that I own is P. brunnea. What's your favorite roach of all time?

Hisserdude - I hope so! Lurking so far has been awesome. There's so much information, pics, and awesome people here that I love it.

Cariblatta lutea - I actually work in Montgomery and travel back and forth all the time. If you have overstock on some species, hit me up. I might be interested.

RomanBuck - I'm still early in and not as big on most pest species.. Unless you consider Periplaneta americana a pest species. I honestly think one of the ones I'm most interested in for the moment are Gyna lurida in their standard and yellow color form. Watching videos of them, they fascinate me,

Periplaneta is a great genus! I want to get them again and make sure they have plenty of ventilation!! I feel bad for what happened to them....
