  1. Despite my sleepiness after a crazy week, we all had a great time discussing mantids, roaches, ants, Triops, and all manner of other invertebrates (and a few vertebrates...) at this past January meeting. Though I unfortunately did not have the new T-shirt design ready in time, we did take advantage of our ability to share our collections via video: MrGhostMantis showed us his Deroplatys truncata, Hierodula membranacea, and Heterochaeta orientalis, sgvmantid showed us his two Stagmomantis limbata, and I showed some of my roaches and beetles. We also got to meet two new club members, XxSpiderQue
  2. Wow, congratulations! That is a very attractive looking species. I hope they do well for you, we need more specimens in culture. Thanks, Arthroverts
  3. And we're back! Happy New Year everyone, the ICSC is officially two years old! The ICSC January meeting will be on the 16th (Saturday), from 10:00-11:30 AM, via Skype. We will be discussing invertebrates (of course) and perhaps talk about guest speakers to invite for the 2021 meetings. I also hope to reveal a new club T-shirt design, if I can finish it in time... Thanks, Arthroverts
  4. It was interesting to see my Blaberus giganteus give birth; the babies were literally being "shot" out at a (relatively) high speed. It is also always funny to see winged species try to fly such as Blaberus and Eublaberus, as though they aren't Panchlora by any stretch, they can still make some good flying leaps. Thanks, Arthroverts
  5. I too wish to become more familiar with the species in culture in Russia... Thanks, Arthroverts
  6. I love the various Blaberus and Eublaberus species, but aside from them I focus less on entire families and more on certain species that catch my eye. Thanks, Arthroverts
  7. Hello all, the meeting is this Saturday (21st), and we're pushing back the start to 11:00 and going to 12:30. We will be meeting on Skype. Since we take a break from meeting in December this is the last club meeting of 2020. We will be having our Thanksgiving-for-Christmas-in-November event at this meeting, and as such only club members are allowed to attend. Looking forward to seeing all who can make it! Thanks, Arthroverts
  8. Blaberus I would think is also an option, as they require a moist environment and in my experience often will hollow out the exoskeletons of dead specimens. Thanks, Arthroverts
  9. I agree with Hisserdude, it really does depend on the species, as Blattodea is such a diverse order that what may be true for one species or genus may be fatal for another. Case in point: most Perisphaerinae as compared to most Panesthiinae. Thanks, Arthroverts
  10. Hello, welcome to the forum! I am not familiar with the specific nutritional values of B. dubia vs. B. lateralis, but considering how many people use strictly B. lateralis for their specimens it can't be significant enough to pose a problem. What temperature are you keeping them at? Roaches will eat less if kept at cooler temperatures. The last question I do not know; I suppose it's possible? Hope this helps, Arthroverts
  11. I was more so curious about just the general vibe being searched for. Generally if a group is set to be casual serious conversation will rarely crop up with any regularity. Thanks, Arthroverts
  12. What sort of chat group? For breeding and serious husbandry discussions? More so casual roach conversations? Other? Thanks, Arthroverts
  13. Hello all, the October meeting will be on the 17th (Saturday), from 10:00-11:30 AM, on Skype.The SD October meeting will be on the 18th (Sunday), from 4:30-6:00 PM, on Skype.I'd like to talk to everyone about a few things as we head into November, such as new club T-shirts, club events, meeting in person again, recruiting new members and member involvement, etc.Looking forward to seeing all who can make it! Thanks, Arthroverts
  14. Well, not for "pet" purposes, but for "education" it certainly is possible ;). Thanks, Arthroverts
  15. Welcome Martin, glad to have you join us! Thanks, Arthroverts
  16. Wow, this is fantastic news for the hobby! The light coloration on the underside of the abdomen is rather interesting. Please update us if you are able to get an ID, though I wonder if it is an undescribed species. Have you measured them at all? How large do they get? Thanks for sharing, Arthroverts
  17. Roach Crossing is back up. Apparently Kyle was just switching it over to a new hosting service. Thanks, Arthroverts
  18. I'd second Blaberus. You could do some nice large pieces of bark and keep a good size colony going, and there are few things more pleasing than picking up a piece of bark and seeing dozens of wings clustered together. You would have to do a fair number of Therea to make it worth it but those would also look cool to see running around. Thanks, Arthroverts
  19. Forgot to mention, the San Diego Chapter of the club is also up and running (led by @Dragozap), the September meeting for the chapter will be on the 20th (Sunday), from 4:30-6:00 PM, on Skype. Meeting link coming soon. Thanks, Arthroverts
  20. I agree there, the site had a bunch of great information and photos. Thanks, Arthroverts
  21. Sorry for the break in posting meetings, been busy. The September meeting will be the 19th, from 10:00-11:30 AM, on Skype. Meeting link available to those interested in attending. Thanks, Arthroverts
  22. Perhaps this is the end of Roach Crossing. I know there's been a lot of hardship and struggles over there, so I wouldn't be surprised if things just fell apart. Hopefully not however. Thanks, Arthroverts
  23. Are these still breeding for you @Cariblatta lutea? They aren't as impressive in stature as Vonones sp. but they are still quite interesting in appearance... Thanks, Arthroverts
  24. As Triple-A said, welcome back! Hoping you are able to return to this amazing side of the hobby soon. Thanks, Arthroverts
  25. Currently redoing our club calendar, I'll upload it on Roach Forum once it is completed. We are still meeting virtually via Skype. Thanks, Arthroverts
