What to keep in new container

Recommended Posts

I have a plastic container about 7.5 inches dia and 9.5 inches tall looking for recommendations of what to keep in it. I was thinking about Arenivaga tonkawa or Arenivaga genitalis and was wondering how they would do, or is there possibly any better choices for this size container?

Wow I feel stupid now. I thought you were asking if your container would work for the roaches you listed.

Now I don't know what your container looks like, but it sounds like it will work for a lot of species.

Panchlora, Periplaneta, and others should work as well.

Post pics. :) (I'd get the Periplaneta, or Panchlora myself)

Well it was a will it work for the listed 1's or someone have a better idea for a roach colony in it. I would think a colony of Periplaneta would  quickly out grow the container.

Yes it will work for your species. 

On the topic of Periplaneta, they have a habit of cannibalizing their ooths so start up is slow.(I caught them in the act, a long with literature evidence) But you'd be surprised at how many roaches can live in seemingly small spaces.

However I figured a climbing species would be more suitable since you can make use of the vertical space, but again your desired roaches will work.

Don't forget about the Panchlora as well.

Arenivaga would probably love that container, I suggest getting A.cf.genitalis, they are more colorful than A.tonkawa. :) They wouldn't outgrow it for a long time, probably a couple of years, (or even longer if you sell some off periodically), which can't be said for Panchlora or Periplaneta.
