Hey everybody! I am and invert addict. Here's my current animal list.



I have kept:



Ants:
Brachyamyrmex Depillis
Camponotus Pennsylvanicus
Crematogaster Lineolata
Formica Subserica
Lasius Neoniger
Nylanderia Flavipes
Prenolepis Imparis
Tapinoma Sessile
Tetramorium Immigrans
Camponotus Chromaides
Camponotus Nearcitcus
Camponotus Novaeboracensis
Lasius Murphyi
Myrmecina sp.
Myrmica sp.
Ponera Pennsylvanica
Temnothorax Curvispinosus
Temnothorax Longispinosus
Lasius Brevicornis

Termites:
Recticulermes Flavipes

Mantids:
Creoborater (suspected gemmatus)
Tarachodula Pantherina
Blepharopsis Mendica
Hymenopus Coronatus

Roaches:
Blaptica Dubia

Butterflys:
Danaus plexippus

Exotic Fish:
Several Saltwater Fish I can't recall the names of
Betta splendens

Cat:
Felis catus

Super worms:
Zophobas morio

Fruit Flies (Feeder):
D. Hydei

Worms:
Lumbricina sp.

Frogs/Tadpoles:
Rana temporaria

Wasps:
Vespula vulgaris Queen for a little while

 
I also have 9 more mantids coming in the mail, and will be ordering 2 jumping spiders and some little Kenyan roaches (12). I also have a colony of Dubias with around 30, no winged adults yet... I probably will be getting some Red Runners in the future. I currently only use my roaches as feeders. I am also a member of arachno boards, tarantulas forum, Formiculture, mantid forum, and beetle forum. I live in upstate NY (Rochester) and am excited to keep roaches! Here is my Dubia setup (they are all hiding, there is also a second hide not visible in pic. Also sorry about the mess in the backround, with so many inverts it gets hard...)

Also, everyone thinks my name is Cole. Yeah that's my username, but not my actual name. I just like the name Cole, partially because it's the main character from my favorite novel. I also don't like using my real name (Shaheer) on the Internet.

Welcome Cole! You are a big ant keeper I see, so I have a question for you. Have you kept any ponerine ants? I am interested in possibly keeping some.

Many thanks, and welcome again!

Yes I have! I kept Ponera Pennsylvanica for some time, but it didn't last in the end.

Welcome Cole! 
I'm pretty sure that your experience with all kind of invertebrates can help the roach community as well.
