  1. It's in a box somewhere around here, hopefully it turns up sooner than later.
  2. Dang! I'll think up a last guess and propose it later.......losing my copy of "For the Love of Cockroaches" really makes this tuff! lol
  3. The only things that I've heard cause them to do this are stress and/or low temps. How large is your cage? Hissers are one of the least crowding-sensitive roaches out there, so as long as their cage isn't TINY and/or without hides, I wouldn't really think stress is causing it. However, if you're keeping them pretty warm (at least the mid 70s), I would isolate her and see if that helps. They are likely goners; hatching aborted eggs seems to be incredibly difficult as they are supposedly very prone to bacterial/fungal infections.
  4. Sounds like she's aborting the eggs, has she been with a male?
  5. Maybe brass micro mesh? That's the smallest screening that I know of, but it's not made from plastic.
  6. Dang man, that's about the most chilling sneak-peak that I've ever seen!
  7. Woah, this would be the craziest thing I've heard of since joining the roach hobby if it were true! But, like the others said, we'd need a pic to confirm.
  8. Yep, pretty much all of the flat millipedes will glow under UV light, quite stunning! Did you also collect that Brachycybe in the upper left-hand corner of the pic?
  9. Dang, you're right! Lol I guess I kind of forgot about the climbing abilities of Lucihormetica since my individuals are always under decor/substrate.
  10. Hemiblabera tenebricosa, Polyphaga saussurei, all Eublaberus species, all Ergaula species, all Lucihormetica species, Archimandrita tesselata, and all Byrsotria species fit your requirements well.
  11. Figured so, but I had to make sure. Probably just dumb luck, but there is an edit option on here to eliminate that problem in the future.
  12. I had something similar occur in my nearly bone dry and highly ventilated Elliptorhina laevigata enclosure when I just used plain coconut fiber(plantation soil) with dead leaves on top. The corners of the enclosure where all the frass would accumulate became pretty moldy and also spread to the leaves, but after I switched to a substrate mix of coconut fiber, coconut husk, sphagnum moss, cypress mulch, and dead leaves everything became fine! A mixture of those various components seems to aerate the substrate very well, in turn taking care of most molds.
  13. Unfortunately I haven't came across anywhere that sells those.
  14. Lowe's sells large bags of it for $3 in the outside section near the soils.
  15. They have zebra-stripes (which you can observe primarily as nymphs), can't fly, and don't have a defensive odor, besides the genetics. lol
  16. Very interesting, maybe the same could be said for Ectobius too if they live in similar climates!
  17. Very cool. I'm planning on acquiring some of those soon, are they as stunning as they look in the pictures?
  18. In the U.S I know that Narceus annularis, Narceus americanus, Narceus gordanus, Floridibolus penneri, Archispirostreptus gigas, Epibolus pulchripes, Apeuthes sp., Acladocricus sp., Chicobolus spingerus, Sigmoria sp., Mardonius parilis, Trigoniulus macropygus, Anadenobolus monilicornis, Trigoniulus corallinus, Brachcybe lecontii, Euryurus leachii, and a few Julid species have been bred. There are probably a couple more, but those are the ones that I can confirm have.
  19. Awesome post man, I don't think I've seen a more detailed one care-wise in my whole time on this forum! Really sucks that you actually have to manually find and remove each ootheca from the main enclosure for incubation, other than that though, everything seems pretty simple. Can't wait to see those videos either!
  20. Hey everyone. Long time no roach, I mean post! I've recently had first generation nymphs pop up with two of my roach species, and you can see which two those are right here: http://allaboutarthropods.blogspot.com/2017/07/summer-brings-baby-roaches.html Hope you guys enjoy! mLD3P30f
  21. Exactly what I'm going to do. lol Will do! I know a lot of people that would.
