Hello all, I'm new on here and to keeping roaches. It was not easy convincing my wife that they would not end up all over the house but I did. I orginally bought them as feeders for my 3 bearded dragons. I ordered a dozen and fed about half right away. I then decided to try to start a colony, again much resistance from the wife, but I finally broke her. When I got them they weren't adults yet and I have had them for about 8 months. Of the 6 or 7 that I had some must have been female cause I got lots of babies. Some of them are just now turning into adults. I keep a heating pad under a 20 gal aquarium for heat, a dish of water and catfood. I also feed scraps from BD salad. I keep a towel over the aquarium to help it stay darker and keep humidity in. I was watering and feeding them and saw something pure white scurry and hide. I have one that is as white as snow, dont know if it is a Albino or what. Also do they shed, I usually find empty shells. I didn't think that they did but maybe they do. If anyone has any suggestions or any comments feel free.
