  1. I ended up buying one that is almost exactly the same. Do you use one as well?

    I am planing on getting that one next week. I have a terrible reaction to my meal worms when I clean them out. The Dubias sometimes, but the meal worms are the worst! I have a friend that uses that product, and he was the one that gave me the link.

  2. The best way to sex them early Keith is by looking at their "rumps" Flip them over, and the male has a more elongated end with an extra segment, almost V shaped. The female is more U shaped and wider with out the extra segment. I know there are photos here in the forum somewhere.. I will try and find them. Otherwise I will come back and post a photo I have of male/female of a different species.

  3. I use tops from gator-aid bottles for my water crystals. It is a small enough amount to be able to keep clean. and big enough to give them a few nice big chunks of water crystals. I find that fruit flies seem to like the crystals, so I change out the dish every 3rd or 4th day, or whenever it looks icky. This way I am not wasting anything.

  4. LOL!! we are a funny bunch!! Beaver??? wow.. now that is an unusual pet! Photos please! I use Mulberry leaves and branches for all my roaches. I have tons of those trees in my yard, and have used them for a year and a half with no side effects. My Hissers LOVE the branches..!

  5. Sounds like you are doing it right to me... It does take awhile for them to settle in and start breeding, but you should get babies soon. (they are live bearers too) I noticed you said not a single female lay eggs, but I am sure you know they bear live young. Misting will help I am sure. They will start soon I bet! Try some Romaine Lettuce and carrots too.. I shred my carrots and they love it! :)

  6. What fun! I love how you did this! I try stuff too, but never with all of them on one "table" !! All of my hissers adore bee pollen. That gets chowed down as soon as I put a little in their tanks. I will have to look for that fruit festive! Looks like lots of yummies in that! Thank you for sharing your experiment!

  7. Hi and Welcome! I love how excited you are about your roaches! Congratulations on them, and it looks like you found some very good friends here!

    Keep posting and talking and listening...You will learn a lot of things here!
