I am an avid herper and exotic animal fan/caretaker but have always harbored the dream of having a large display tank containing insects. While I know vast amounts of info on herps, fish, birds, large animals, and many/most other exotics.. I know little on these guys! I would love to change that..
I am trying to find out which species are compatible.. I'm not really familiar with many insects that are kept as pets in general but I am thinking something along the lines of Hissers, Death's Head roaches, Giant Madagascar Millipedes... and anything that would go well with them. I am not sure if the listed species are compatible (they seem to have the same/similar req.s)...
Maybe these species won't do well and maybe there's another 'assortment' that will thrive better together? Any tips/advice/suggestions at all would be wonderful!
Can Death's Head Roaches, Hissers, and Giant Millipedes live together? What else can go with them and whatnot?
How many specimens will a 29 gallon (high) hold? I mean, I'm not looking to have 30 of each roach type and 5 'pedes or anything... But I'm thinking some like 10/10/1.
They all seem to require the same care.. Which bedding is the best for them? I favor Nature's Bed/coconut fiber due to being environmentally sound in many ways as well as holding humidity well (moldy though?).
****Please also take a peak at my posting in the photo section... In reference to seeing other display tanks owned by forum members..
