Hi there I'm Bandi, long time invert lover and keeper from Southern Arizona.
I was never really fond or roaches, more of a phobia actually, until I was given a starter colony of Gromphadorhina portentosa. I'm now hooked. I ended up also rescuing a group of Dubia nymphs that were in a pre packaged, sealed container at a big box store. I use their offspring as feeders for my 2 tarantula slings.
I also now have a large group of Pycnoscelus nigra, and have one adult female Arenivaga genitalis that I'm going to be getting a male for in the summer when they come out to my lights. (crossing fingers that I can get a group started.)
I also keep a number of Isopods and true spiders.
I plan on keeping more species of roaches, and I hope to be acquiring a starter of Archimandrita tesselata with in the next week.
I'm hoping to get some care tips for my female Arenivaga genitalis. That was what actually brought me here was an older post from 2016/ 2017 about this species.
Thank you for letting me join. I hope to learn a lot.
