  1. too bad it isn't D.orini but still a cool roach =) Unfortunately I'm not still there but if I get the chance again I will go roach hunting for these guys and do my best to selectively breed them!
  2. So I recently went to Disneyland and found this smushed roach in the California Adventure park and then I found another unfortunately smushed one in the main park. I was reading Hisserdude's post about Dorylaea orini today and this guy sure looks like one. I think it would be pretty funny to collect roaches from disneyland since they make themselves look so clean and pest free and it would also be fun to collect a bunch of them and selectively breed them to have a certain feature and call them Dorylaea orini "Disney" or something like that. I could just be getting my hopes up but oh well
  3. I'm a little late but welcome to the forum! You'll be hooked on the fascinating world of roaches in no time =)
  4. Awesome finds, and good luck with those ooths =)
  5. man, I hope they get to you alive! I'll be watching this post closely and crossing my fingers for you. Good luck!
  6. For my three hisser girls I just use a Critter Keeper terrarium and it works well. They are pretty nice plastic tanks that I've used to keep a wide variety of creatures in since I was around ten so I know that they are fairly strong. strong enough for roaches for sure. I would however, take some fine mesh and use that to cover the lid from the inside if I was expecting nymphs. Here's a link to one https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0002APZOE/ref=asc_df_B0002APZOE5022547/?tag=hyprod-20&creative=394997&creativeASIN=B0002APZOE&linkCode=df0&hvadid=167136460722&hvpos=1o12&hvnetw=g&hvrand=3008090957097873313&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9032360&hvtargid=pla-314499104851 Side note: they don't seem to be able to climb the walls very well so I use a bit of cork bark on the back wall. And welcome to the forum =]
  7. Welcome to the forum, good luck on finding some of those isopods! I've got some dalmatians myself and quite enjoy them because they are easy to separate from the substrate due to their white coloring.
  8. Nice simple directions and a sweet end product, thanks for sharing! =]
  9. Welcome to the world of cockroaches and welcome to the forum!
  10. Most people use things like dog or cat food or oats as their dry foods, all of which you can find at Walmart.
  11. Congrats! I'm still waiting for my nymphs to be adults :/ keep us updated on those Halloween Hissers too!
  12. Congrats dude, that's impressive.
  13. Congratulations! Keep us updated on how the hierarchy changes with your males and post pictures when you can! =)
  14. I live in the bay area, near San Francisco and I was wondering what kinds of native roaches could I find near me. I would like to go out and find some roaches because I quite enjoy going outside and looking under rocks and logs for various insects and reptiles or amphibians and it would be really interesting to catch and keep some roaches and to observe their natural habitat too.
  15. Welcome back to the forum, as Skyvie said you still have quite a collection. But good luck getting it back to its former size! =)
  16. Those look awesome, I hope they do well for you =) I've heard that you can feed them faerie fire mushrooms to make their spots glow, you should try that and record your results!
  17. Don't worry, this will probably never actually happen (at least not with me). I would prefer not to hybridize with tiger hissers anyways. I do not have an actual colony of hissers and I am fairly sure that the three females that I have are hybrids of some kind (maybe they aren't but I don't know) so I would like to get a colony of pure Gromphadorhina oblogonata and will definitely partake in selective breeding just as I plan to do with my Blabberus Craniifer once they reach adulthood.
  18. Alpine green cockroach, Polyzosteria viridissima
  19. What kinds of hissing cockroaches tend to get the biggest and how big do they get? I am asking because I would like to hybridize them in the future to make a larger hissing cockroach. And yes, I will be very responsible about it.
  20. I have heard a roughly two inch thin vaseline layer works better than a thick barrier so that could be it, it may also have to do with the temperature of the vaseline. Generally what I hear about this is to simply keep them in a sealable enclosure with lots of tiny air holes. Good luck =)
  21. I am reviving a quite old forum however, I think this beautiful roach is a good reason to do so =} I believe it is called Eushelfordia pica
  22. Welcome to the forum, good luck getting your collection back up to size =)
